Graduation Credit: Visual and Performing Arts, UC-approved Course Description: This standards-based course is designed to introduce students to the elements and principles of art through visual literacy, reading, writing, application and creative expression using a variety of traditional media and studio techniques to create works of art. Styles from representational to abstract are explored from multi-cultural and historical perspectives. Students will use the language of visual art to interpret, analyze and judge works of art. Students will connect art learning to other curricular areas and explore career opportunities in visual art. Students will create a portfolio of works, write critical analyses and be expected to pass an end-of-course assessment.
