CASA Visual Art
Visual Art provides an introduction to philosophy of art; art criticism and art history, while art production classes in drawing, painting, and mixed media build knowledge and technical skill for creative artworks. Introduction to a variety of drawing and painting media, compositional techniques, color theory, critiques, and reflections upon the work provide skills needed to move from a realistic image to personal expression and significant meaning. Through study of the urban landscape, still lifes, and personally meaningful subject matter, students develop a strong foundation of observational skills and a portfolio of artworks for college reviews. The focus is on the individual development of each student’s personal style. Artwork displayed in local venues is used as a resource for study. Field trips and visiting artists provide connection to the real world of art. Students also exhibit their work and collaborate with their colleagues in other art areas.
