Welcome to Ms Collins's Website


 In Studio Art/ Ceramics, students will learn to create, present, respond and connect to art. Using a variety of techniques students will create two-dimensional and three-dimensional works of art. We will explore visual arts through basic elements and principles of design. Various techniques, skills, art movements and styles will be highlighted in this class. Students will develop skills needed to analyze, evaluate and interpret social and cultural influences in art as well as the expressive, technical and formal properties of art.
