Visual Art at HSAC consists of a sequenced learning set of aesthetic design skills which begins with Art History. We then have a focus on 1D, 2D, & 3D perspectives within open and closed picture planes. Traditional mediums such as paint, and pastels are applied along with different sculpting mediums. Examples of student work can be seen on all the walls of our school as a visual reference to this unique curriculum.
