Be Creative, Respectful, Brave, and Have Fun
ARt is an expression of who you are, so do not be afraid to show us.
We will explore Drawing and Design techniques, Color Principles, 2D and 3D art, and photography and graphic design.
For all middle and high school art classes, you should have your own set of drawing tools and a sketchbook to draw in. You should also pick up a set of coloring tools (crayons, markers, colored pencils, oil pastels, etc) so you will be able to color in your projects. All students will have to take photographs of their art projects and learn how to send them in on TEAMS for grading.
For Painters I would recommend using Acrylic paints, assorted brush sets that include a palette knife, and a fan brush (these sets of 25 pieces are available on Amazon for 4.96 Amazon.com: Artist Brush Set by Artist's Loft, 25 Pieces). Kids can paint on any surface, but I would recommend something sturdier than regular paper. (wood, cardboard, poster board, bristol vellum drawing pads, watercolor paper, etc.) I mainly use canvases and posterboard. DON'T SPEND A FORTUNE.....CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
Ask your child to view their work from time to time too. They create such beautiful artwork throughout the year that is showcased in our OVS Art Gallery on TEAMS
