What makes something art? In this class, students will share and investigate their own experience of art with others and explore diverse forms of art making to broaden their understanding. The class will begin with a compelling discussion about what makes something art. From there, the class will investigate the different elements of art: line, shape, color, value, form, texture, and space. Each lesson will introduce a new element of art and compelling project for students to create based upon that element. Projects include line-drawings, graffiti art, optical illusion drawings, collage-projects, a design-your-own CD cover project, nature art projects, and more. Through the introduction and exploration of art vocabulary and techniques, as well as the experimentation with new art media, students will approach art methods, thinking, and creation in new and exciting ways.

Course Duration (weeks): Two weeks. Course Frequency (meetings / week): 2nd session: Meets Monday, July 27th- Thursday, August 6th. Course meetings Monday through Thursday. Course Length (hours): 1.5 hours Course Times: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Hi, I’m Ms. Chavatel!

I live in Fenwick Island, Delaware and currently teach middle school art. I got my Bachelors of Fine Art Degree from the University of Delaware and love working in all media- such as drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, and collage! This summer, I am teaching this online art course entitled: Art: Mixed Media. In this course, we will explore subjects such as graffiti and optical illusions, as well as create projects such as a "design your own CD cover" and "create your own collage". We will also experiment with different materials and learn new ways to create! Can't wait to meet you!
