Painting is not available this quarter
Painting is a quarter-long class dedicated to extending student knowledge of different painting techniques. Students are expected to be familiar with basic color theory, color schemes, and tempera & watercolor techniques. In Painting II, students will continue using values to create realistic objects, how to create distance in a landscapes, and introduce new painting techniques based on our art history study of Impressionism & Post-Impressionism from the late 1800s.
*A spiral-bound sketchbook or notebook is required for this class.
I recommend taking this class following Painting I and Drawing.
I can choose the most appropriate & effective watercolor techniques and fonts to artistically interpret a quote.

This class is planned using the North Carolina Essential Standards.
Each class will complete one lesson that may be used for ASW/ Teacher Evaluation. For more information about the ASW process, click here.
Students earn a daily grade for attempting the warm-up as class begins. Daily grades are averaged twice a quarter for classwork grades
Students earn a class "Participation" grade at MIDTERM and FINAL by being on-task every day. Each student starts with 100, and points are deducted. Choosing not to participate is -3 points (like not dressing out in PE). A mess left behind is -1 point for each day this happens.
