Welcome to Art 1! This is my 7th year teaching and my 5th year at Corbett. I graduated from the Art Institute of Dallas with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and specialized in Design. I am currently pursuing my Master's at ASU for an MS in UX Design.

 Course Description

Art 1 sets the foundation for Visual Arts. Students will learn about the elements and principles of art and how they work together to create beautiful works of art. Students will observe different works of art. Students will gain knowledge and understanding of art through constructive critique from their peers and teachers. They will also have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of mediums and learn techniques in drawing, painting, sculpting, and digital media.
