This is an opportunity to explore art appreciation, learn visual arts vocabulary and create mixed media works of art. Art appreciation helps students learn to think and express ideas. Observing works of art closely, students are able to describe what they see and learn to visualize as they create works of art.

Each week participants will have the opportunity to appreciate and briefly discuss different works of art incorporating the visual arts vocabulary. Participants will create 4-6 different mixed media art projects. Once each art project is briefly explained, participants can begin creating.

Course Overview

Educators are tasked with helping students develop the intellectual and social strength necessary to navigate the complexities of this ever-changing world. As an institution, education has struggled to keep up with the needs of the contemporary student. We must reimagine the classroom environment and rethink traditional teacher and
