CCA students find themselves immersed in the worlds and styles of influential painters and sculptors as they explore the visual arts each week. Throughout the year, students build their understanding of color, balance, pattern, and space through a variety of projects designed to explore creative expression and develop skill. With each grade, students delve deeper into their understanding of art and design concepts resulting in a cumulative skill and appreciation for the visual arts.
In Middle School, students can choose to deepen their skills in the visual arts by electing to continue their art studies. Students will learn about the elements of art (line, shape, color, value, form, texture, and space) and how each element plays a part in the foundation of all artwork. This course will also explore different time periods and the active artists of those eras, discussing and illustrating artwork based on these signature styles.
