    Drawing and Painting:  This course is all about developing your skills as an artist focusing on fine drawing and painting skills. Using the skills and tools learned in Studio Art we perfect our ability to draw from real life and portray light as it moves across an object or person. We learn different styles of painting from impressionism to photo realism.

You will be learning both 35mm black and white developing and processing as well as digital media combined with computer graphics. This course demands that you be responsible with the equipment in and outside of class and will not tolerate ANY irresponsible behavior or actions because of the expensive equipment belonging to Livingston Manor Central School.

    Ceramics:  This course will be split into two separate stations, hand building and pottery (wheel throwing). Hand building will take place at the tables in the technology room and pottery will take place in the ceramics lab located inside the technology room.
