Class V Visual Art
The student in Class V has matured physically to take on more ambitious skills and be introduced to new media this year. Portrayal of realism continues in a more advanced setting. The use of light through shading creates illusions of realism. Students design landscapes and simple architectural renderings using two-point perspective. Finally, students learn to create wood sculpture reliefs. As always, creativity and imagination are encouraged as well as expected. In addition, basic color theory is emphasized in order for students to develop more expressive pieces of work. Aesthetic goals are integrated with the Class V goals.
