Art Fundamentals is an introductory course that explores a variety of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional media like: drawing, painting, ceramics, wearable art, and sculpture. Previous art experience is not necessary for this course as each student will create and grow artistically at his or her own level. The goal for students is to express and share their personal narratives and voice through the creation
of art. Throughout the semester, students will gain a better understanding of why we create art and the importance that art plays in our culture. Art Fundamentals is a prerequisite for advanced studio art courses. If interested in pursuing advanced art courses, it is recommended to take Art Fundamentals as a freshman or sophomore.
