In Art Studio I students will study the Elements of Design begun in the Grammar years, in Art Studio Transition, or some other instructional context. As students enter the “dialectic stage” of their art education they will delve more deeply into understanding the Principles of Design, the “logic” of good art. Observational Drawing will be taught using Classical Methods such as Comparative Measuring. Students will explore Drawing, Painting, Printmaking and Sculpture. In addition to their projects, students will keep a sketchbook. Instruction will include observational drawing exercises, viewing great artwork from the past, step by step demonstrations, and personal critiques on their projects. This is a studio course and time will be provided in class for working on projects within a community of other artists. Homework will average 2-3 hours per week.
Art Studio I is taught by an expert instructor in the Veritas Virtual Classroom and is limited to only 20 students per course.
