Fine Art Fundamentals projects are designed to be fun and engaging with emphasis on building technical ability and developing personal style. Students begin to look at values, or lights and darks, to create form. All projects are based on observation and each brings a different composition challenge, requiring students to re-think how they place their marks and shapes on the page.
New Fine Art Fundamentals students are required to take a pre-requisite Form Class. This class demonstrates how to use values to create form and starts students on weekly homework drawings. Check out the Fine Art Fundamentals section of our Parent Board to find the weekly assignment.
