CreateArt 8 (CA8)
1 (semester course)
In this course lessons will include an emphasis on the elements and principles of art, while exploring drawing, painting, and multimedia techniques. Students will create projects done in one to three week units that will introduce a variety of materials and expressive approaches to art, including techniques and principles of sculpture.
Students need access to a digital camera for some projects. Projects are either scanned or photographed for submission.
The Arts were created to provide us with ways to worship. Most of us associate music with worship, but the visual arts are just as valuable! God created beauty, and through art we can reflect that beauty back to him. Just like musicians need training, artists need some training, too.
This class is aimed at the 8th Grade student that would like to learn more about art, become more visually literate and improve their drawing and composition skills. We will explore a variety of media including the basics: pencil, colored pencils, and paint, as well as more diverse media: markers, oil pastels, and papier mache sculpture. We will explore animal drawing and linear perspective drawing in this class. Yes, there is something for everyone’s interests. So, I am looking forward to having you in class and we can work together to make art a valuable part of your self-expression.
If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
