Focusing on drawing techniques, this foundation course will build skills needed to continue on the visual arts track. In this class, we will learn the vocabulary and explore the different drawing and painting tools of an artist. Through exploring still-lifes and a variety of exciting subjects like animals and nature, we will use different drawing and painting tools, such as charcoal, pencils, watercolor, and acrylic paint.
