Visual Art 30

Course Description

Visual Art 30 is well suited to those with a passion for drawing, but we welcome learners of all abilities and degrees of experience. We delve into art history, art appreciation, and studio art, and examine a number of works from both historical and cultural perspectives. We will also study the basics of drawing using two-dimensional, dry media such as drawing pencils, charcoal, and pencil crayons.

As well as expressing their views in writing, students will be challenged to respond to various artworks by creating work of their own. The creation process entails both planning and hands-on art production.
