Art 1

One Term                      Grades 9,10,11,12                   Elective

Prerequisite for ALL other Art Courses

NOTE: Students must have completed Art 1 before taking any other Art courses, and cannot be taken simultaneously with another art class in any given term, unless approved by the Department Chair. This beginning course is designed to give a foundation in the creation of art, art history, aesthetics, and the elements and principles of art including color theory. Students will explore basic 2-D art media and techniques, such as drawing, painting, and mixed media. Students will develop an ability to talk about their work and the work of others in classroom critiques. Art 1 is a valuable introduction and prerequisite to all other art courses offered at Worthington High School.
