Art with a Closed Ear but an Open Mind

 

Welcome! All Deaf communities to an art class with you in mind. The Hearing is welcome too. Art is another form of communication. A picture is worth a thousand words. We shall speak with our art. Welcome.

 

COURSE:

 

In art class, our course of study will focus upon problem-solving, using the elements and principles of design in order to create expressive, but well­ organized works of art. We will also focus heavily on basic drawing skills. Students will be exposed to a variety of both two and three-dimensional materials and mediums, and will also have opportunities to write about and discuss their own works, and the works of others.

 

GOALS:

 

  • Explore art through a variety of media

  • Discover art concepts and terms through art criticism and art production

  • Learn about famous artist and their work

  • Apply aesthetic judgment when viewing art

  • Express yourself visually

  • Know the Elements of Art and how they affect a composition by using the Principles of Design

  • Make the most out of every project you create!
