This course is a beginning level art class which also may be taken at any time by any student at any grade level. This class has been developed for those students that would like to try an art class, but who think to themselves, "I would like to take an art class, but I can't draw!" The students in this class focus on "design" projects that are created essentially through the use of line, shape, color, space, etc. So any student can be successful here by putting forth the effort to learn about the elements of art and being willing to try new things. They do not have to know how to draw.
