Art promotes independent and creative thought which can benefit students not only in their artistic development, but in their academic classes as well. There is more than one way to solve a problem; getting started is the key. Students will learn that mistakes should not be feared, but can actually have favorable effects and provide new ideas. Besides art’s academic and psychological benefits, it is (of course) fun for the artist and the audience.
Goals in art this semester include:
1.Students will be introduced to a variety of art media and techniques to help them understand there are many ways to express themselves in art.
2.To help students think about their own inspiration and style, they will learn about different artists and their different inspirations and styles. It will be stressed that artists do have thought behind their art and can express their ideas in words as well.
3.Some assignments will be step by step to teach basic techniques (especially when it comes to drawing). However, most assignments will give a “problem” that the students will have to decide how to solve. The “problem” can be as simple as “paint a picture of your choice” or as open-ended as “create a mixed-media self-portrait.” I want students to be able to find solutions without hand-holding. Creative thinking and confidence is the goal. “I don’t know what to do,” is a frowned-upon expression.

There is no homework, but work must be made up if a class is missed. It is the students’ responsibility to find out if there is make up work by asking the teacher what work must be made up for each day missed. Students have one week from the day they return to make up any missed work. After that, the work is a “zero” which really damages a grade.
A student who feels they have no artistic talent need not worry in this class unless that feeling freezes them and they do not try. Students who try will see they can create interesting artworks. Art is subjective. Beauty can be found in most things. Even in a project that is a total disaster, there was something to be learned.
