About Our Classes
Students enrolled in visual arts classes at Brookwood High School will experience numerous traditional and contemporary art making processes while working to enhance their own artistic voice. The focus of our art courses is on the development of students’ technical skills and higher-order thinking. Students will engage in the creative process, solve visual problems, and pursue open-ended inquiry through the production of artworks. Emphasis will be placed on creativity, problem solving, ideation, developing an informed use of the elements of art and principles of design, along with exploring art history.
