Visual Art 2

Location: 518

Visual Art II is the continuation of Art I, which now expands into drawing and collage to visually observe the world, express yourself and interpret the world around you. We start by building your sketchbook and throughout the year, learn the basics of bookbinding for artist’s books. The class moves from line quality to tone, shading and composition. Observational drawing expands your skills of looking, interpreting what you see and what you imagine. Homework involves using the sketchbook for personal explorations and required sketching visits to museums around New York City. You will use your art blog to explore the world of art online, share your own thinking and reflect on your progress.
