In Art 2, students explore artistic expression of their own personal interests. They learn to organize art into categories and to identify the various methods and materials used to create art. Throughout this course, students expand their artistic vocabulary, using it to describe the works they are studying. They explore the ways in which color can represent mood in artworks and create their own works to express their mood. While learning safe procedures for working with artistic materials, students experiment with mixing colors. In addition to creating artworks that depicts family, school, and community life, students also gain familiarity with works from European and Asian cultures.
