Junior Art Essentials

Producing quality artwork depends on developing a fluency with the language of art and learning the principles of organizing the elements in a particular piece. This course gives students a strong foundation of art techniques and knowledge from which they can peruse their creative endeavors.

All materials and books will be included in the additional course materials fee ($75), which is due upon registration, along with the $195 deposit.
