The fundamentals of art (line, value, shape, texture, space, and form) are emphasized through examples and projects focused on drawing. Critical analysis of artwork is stressed in the application of the elements of art and the principles of design. Art appreciation and art history is included as students evaluate the works of European masters and learn to apply specific drawing pencil techniques to create 36 original works of art.
Nine video lessons aid students in working independently as they learn drawing techniques and handy tips about being an artist; they then apply those ideas to their own unique works of art.
Twenty-seven text lessons broaden the scope of learning on the following ways:
- Students learn to use graded pencils as they advance from line drawing to full tonal drawing with cast shadows and reflected light, lending more realism to the look of their artworks.
- Students see the elements of art in Master artworks while looking at World Art and learn about the artists and their cultures.
- Students incorporate new techniques and processes for drawing into artworks exploring subjects of animals, still life, landscape, and figures.
