    Course Descriptions/Objectives: This course is designed to expose students to the idea that art is everywhere. Through historical and cultural examples, art is an integral part of the world and a foundation for people to communicate a message. All students will be able to define, identify, and obtain knowledge of the design elements in the production of art. Comprehension will include description, explanation, and interpretation of aesthetics, art criticism, and self evaluation throughout the experience. Procedures, techniques, and processes will be applied to the production of functional art.

    OVERVIEW OF APPLIED ART & DESIGN I:

    The thematic units have been designed to coincide with the New Jersey Standards for Art Education. Each of the six standards is exemplified into the lessons and units. The plan was written to allow students to experiment with artwork through communication, demonstration and evaluation. The elements have been broken down into individualized goals and objectives, which are the basis of all visual art. A novice art student should be exposed to a variety of mediums, tool utilization, and art styles and artistic periods; as well as how to evaluate one’s own work and the designs of peers.
    Each project will be assessed by the teacher based on five components, which are relevant to the project. A point system will be established totaling 100 points.
