ART FUNdamentals, part one, A-G Course

10:00-Noon, Wednesdays

grades 8-12

Mature 7th graders can take this class after approval by teacher.

Facilitated by Elizabeth Rydall

(For Sage Oak learners: See Visual Art Projects syllabus.)

This very special course is for the student who knows nothing about art but really wants to learn in a fun project-based way, or for a more interested and experienced student who wants to develop skills and creativity, while getting high school credit. This class does have weekly work to be done out of class and will equal 60 hours of learning or more during the semester. We will also plan a field trip or two! All learners will be asked to buy a text book, a sketch book, and pencil set, a small set of acrylic paint, a small set of watercolor paint, and to wear clothes that are conducive to creating pottery, paintings, and drawings, junk art, collage, assemblage and more! Learners will focus on the works of master artists as well as developing their own voice through the project assignments. This class culminates in an art presentation in December. Cost for a 16-week semester and all materials aside from the ones listed above is: $540.

THEATRE ARTS, part one, A-G course

Wednesdays, 12:30-2:30

Grades 8-12

Classes facilitated by Elizabeth Rydall (For Sage Oak Learners: see A-G Drama 1 syllabus.)

An exploration of all the history, skills and creativity involved in the world of Theatre. In this class learners will be able to write scenes, read plays, develop plot ideas, do improvisation, design a costume or do make-up, build a set, and ultimately perform on or behind the scenes for our culminating performance. This class will equal 60 hours of work in and out of class, but much of the work is so much fun that she/he may not even notice the work! Students will wear closed toed shoes and wear clothes easy to work in (no short skirts or revealing tops). A textbook will be required, and field trip will be planned for the learners. Cost for a 16 week semester and most materials is $520.
