Students who participate in this team learn essential art skills that improve their knowledge and abilities. We learn about composition, value, color, accurate drawing, materials care and safety, and a wide variety of mediums from pencil, charcoal, and pastel to watercolor and acrylic painting. Projects vary each year with significant time spent on a particular focus. As students work on focus projects, they develop a cohesive body of work that engenders a deeper knowledge of that subject.
- In 2014-15 students each chose an artist to study in a year-long project, and a series of pieces were individually designed to relate to the specific artists.
- In 2015-16 students learned about the role artists have played in creating and promoting public awareness of, and interest in, wilderness and the National Park Service. Students each chose a National Park to focus on, engaging in research and artistic representations.
Participation in this group requires dedicated attendance and a great attitude as we go outside our personal comfort zones and work hard to learn and develop our abilities.
