Art (Intermediate) 54162X0A
(Previously known as Art II) This course builds on the student’s technical skills and foundation of knowledge developed in Art I. The study of the elements of art and principles of design, color theory, vocabulary, and art history continues in Art II. Various art processes, procedures, and theories are presented in a problem solving manner which allows for independent choices and personal solutions to problems. The approach to art experiences is less experimental and based more on informed choices. Student research of art and artists is a major source for gaining knowledge and understanding of past and present art forms. Art II stresses a flexible and fluent use of the elements of art and principles of design, color, theory, and vocabulary.
