Basic Art

Clarion Area High School



Basic Art is a course that provides an introduction to art through a multi-media experience, building on techniques learned in General Art 8.  Students will learn and apply the elements and principles of design to produce creative art projects that reflect their understanding of these concepts as well as personal expression. Students will encompass the arts through production, history, criticism, and aesthetics. This course will result in measurable gains for all students in knowledge and skills for a foundation of learning for a continued study in the arts.


Materials will be provided by the instructor.
