Art 1- Foundations

Teacher: Mrs. Satterwhite


Room D106
This course is considered an entry level course in visual arts. It is designed with the beginning
artist in mind and will be expected to learn concepts and terms relating to visual art. Additionally
we will explore themes that will challenge you to think critically about your own identity, the
community you live in both global and local, popular culture, visual consumerism, and how
history affects the modern day and specifically you as a person.
