In this 8 week semester course, students will learn what the principles of design are, how to identify them in a work of art, and how to use them in their own art.

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Beginner - Intermediate Level
Students will know and understand each of the principles of art and how they can be used in a work of art.
I am a licensed, veteran art teacher with over 30 years' experience teaching the elements of art. Over the years, I've found and developed fun and interesting art projects and processes to help kids learn and remember what the elements are and why they are important to the artistic process.
Homework Offered
Because this is a flex class, each weekly assignment is essentially "homework," with the expectation that students will upload images of their assignments in the classroom.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Optional grades can be given to students who need fine art credit for homeschooling or charter school requirements upon request. Otherwise, learner progress is assessed informally, through discussion throughout the course.
