This fun and exciting course allows students ages 14-17 to explore their imagination and sample various techniques with a hands on approach in traditional and contemporary methods, ultimately find their own voice through the arts. Through (life) drawing, painting, sculpture/object making, collage, assemblage, mixed media, students learn technical skills, knowledge of contemporary visual arts and art history, and are encouraged to develop their own personal creative process. Field trips to museums and galleries as well as exhibition are also an integral part of the program.
