Introduction to Art

Welcome to our Introduction to Art Class Site!‚Äč

Mr. Fonseca

 

This class is an entry level course open to all grades and serves as the foundation for all of the visual arts classes offered at AHS.  It is our belief that the best way to understand art is to roll up your sleeves and do it!  Towards that end, we will learn the methods and tools used by artists beginning with drawing.  We will then try to expand that experience and apply it to several other mediums and methods throughout the semester.
