This unique course explores the world of 2D art media (specifically, drawing and painting) and includes discussions on art history, application, use, and enjoyment. Encourages students to "think outside the lines" as they nurture their own artistic inclinations and develop a style. Also encourages attendance at shows and exhibitions. Most assignments require responses in varied media for submission and grading. ART 1A makes the necessary transition to ART 1B seamless and exciting. Students will be required to purchase a number of art supplies (see list). Note: Due to the nature of the lesson assignments for this course, we are unable to accept assignments via e-mail.
