Art Class – Level Two builds on the skills acquired in the Beginning Art Class – Level 1. Greater emphasis on art history. Students will do artist studies of important illustrators and painters and art style studies for modern art careers popular today. This class will follow the same flow of medium as Level One. Middle school or Junior High Students who want to be challenged may also join this high school-level class.
Skills & Projects
- Still Life
- Abstract Art
- Acrylic Painting
This class is structured differently than other True North Homeschool Academy courses. To allow students time to work independently on their creative projects, the Art Class will meet twice a month on the second and fourth Fridays of the month from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Central Time Students will have independent assignments between meetings.
Note to Parents: Art skills and styles vary widely between individuals, even at a learning age. The goal, and therefore grading, of both Art Club levels, are not based on the idea that there is one singular bar that all students must reach, but rather on individual growth in skill sets and understanding in each student. The serene nature of Monet’s “Water Lilies” is not judged by the vivid motion of Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” nor by Frida Kahlo’s rich Hispanic portrait work judged against Pablo Picasso’s abstract eye.
