Art – High School





Hales, Ginger


Students will study the basic principles and elements of art, color theory, sculpture, drawing, painting, print making, art history, and more. Projects will be competed in class and at home.  This course is designed to encourage students’ creativity and instill a love for art. 


Supplies: These are the recommended supplies.

Students do not need to all bring supplies to class each week.  Check Google Classroom each week to see which supplies need to be brought each indivudual week.  Supplies cannot be stored in the classroom.

You are welcome to substitute products and shop around at other stores. Most of the items I listed are off Amazon. Hobby Lobby and Michaels are good stores to buy from during their sales. It is important for some of the art supplies like watercolors, watercolor paper, charcoal and pencil paper, and oil pastels to be of good quality. Poor quality paper will warp, and tear and inexpensive watercolors will have terrible pigment. Another consideration is to buy in bulk with another person or group. Some of the items listed on Amazon are cheaper to buy in multiple packs. Students will not be able to share the supplies in class, but buying together in bulk might save money. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions. I am looking forward to teaching art, it’s going to be a great year!
