Landscapes, Habitats, and Historical Adventures- Mrs. Raynor
Landscapes, Habitats, and Historical Adventures:
Students will journey to different times, places, and habitats as their focus points for drawing multiple environments. We will use childhood stories, facts/events in history, and famous geographic locations from the 14th-17th centuries. This broad subject matter will allow students to first focus on minor skills, showcasing the main elements of art: color, form, line, shape, space, shadow, and texture, building up to larger-scale projects that showcase the principles of art: balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, pattern, rhythm, and unity/variety, perspective, color, and use of space. Let us travel through time and expand our artistic skills together, growing our knowledge of art’s primary elements and principles.
