Art

These programs are designed so that students will experiment with a variety of media to create visual art. The elements of art (line, shape, space, color, value, texture, and form) are studied in two-dimensional and three dimensional work. Students will begin to apply the principles of design, (rhythm, direction, balance, contrast, dominance, proportion, and harmony/unity) in their art making practices. Art is a form of visual communication; therefore, students will continually reflect their thoughts (both written and verbal) on the work of other artists, cultural art traditions, and art history. In addition, students will continually practice their drawing skills in sketchbook assignments.

My employment background consists of graphic designer/art director at an advertising agency and 16 years as a art/graphics teacher. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (Graphic Design) and a Master of Art Education from VCU.
