Art I - Drawing, Painting, Sculpting, Printmaking, DesigningThe Loudoun County Public Schools’ High School Art Education Program infuses art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetic critiques. Art I is designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop a foundation of varied art skills, techniques, and concepts. This course teaches students how to see and understand their expressive potential and allows them to begin to form opinions and judgments about their artwork and that of their peers. The students will establish a continuing portfolio for the purpose of generating ideas, recording visual incidence, analyzing historical/professional examples, and exploring imaginative and symbolic ideas.
