Welcome to Studio Art! Contrary to what one might believe, a student does not have to be gifted with a unique talent in order to be able to draw. The purpose of this class is to give the students the skills they need in order to create their own original artwork, both in class and whenever they feel the desire to express themselves emotionally and creatively.

The literal meaning of geometry is measuring the earth. Geometry is the branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. Geometry is one of the oldest mathematical sciences. Initially a body of practical knowledge concerning lengths, areas, and volumes, in the 3rd century BC, geometry was put into an axiomatic form by Euclid, whose treatment—Euclidean geometry—set a standard for many centuries to follow. It is Euclid’s geometry that we will be studying this year.

Each unit is introduced with a central thematic question that is the driving force behind the subsequent lessons. ie. Why is there so much conflict in the Middle East? Students are active learners and use a variety of sources to discover the world of the past which is very much alive today.
