You are expected to purchase an art kit, to the cost of $65 approx.
This will include paints, high quality brushes, pencils, charcoals, eraser, and much more. All contained an an art bag so that you can take your art equipment home three times per week, because this subject requires continuous homework to succeed. Do not do homework at your peril.

The subject matter you make art about are your own choice, with some exceptions outlined by the teacher. eg. no cartoons. You will explore many media, ideas and extend your ideas through the use of artist models.  You will learn to celebrate your own art, and others' visual worlds and cultures .
