Thanks for visiting my homepage! All Art classes taught at Upton are taught with the philosophy that students do not have to be "gifted" artists. However, I do expect my students to be hard workers, responsible individuals, and excellent thinkers. While in this art class my students will develop skills in producing visual art in a variety of ways. The studio experiences that the students will be exposed to are drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, and printmaking. Students will also learn to use the vocabulary of an artist as well as to critically analyze artwork.
