Drawing and Design

Course Length: Full year   |   Suggested Grade Level(s): 9, 10, 11, 12

In this course, students are introduced to the primary concepts of drawing and design using exercises and readings designed to enhance artistic skills and appreciation. These drawing and design principles develop a student’s capacities to think creatively and to develop an eye for aesthetics. Exercises include gestural drawing, contour drawing, the use of values to add dimension, portraits, visual composition, and proportion. Students gain experience drawing with pencil, charcoal, colored pencils, soft pastels, and oil pastels.

Our Drawing and Design course is designed for students who are already practicing art and are looking to develop their skills.
