MS DRAWING & PAINTING
Welcome to Drawing and Painting! Ever wonder how you can grow your artistic abilities? In this course, students will be learning about different artists from around the world while planning, creating, and reflecting on their own art. Using the tools, tricks and techniques of professional artists, students will create people and objects that leap off the page. Students will use their MIPS provided sketchbook to put down ideas and impressions. We’ll be learning how to analyze, interpret and evaluate art. Best of all, students will create a sketchbook portfolio of work that demonstrates their own skill and growth as an artist.
MS DIGITAL ART
Welcome to Digital Art Class! Develop your digital art knowledge and skills! This course is an introduction to applications and platforms that allows students to explore a variety of creative digital art activities. These may include the creation of photographs, videos, graphic designs, and illustrations.

Please note that 75 percent of assignments in this course will be created digitally (using a MIPS provided computer or iPad), while 25 percent of assignments will use a MIPS provided sketchbook to plan and document ideas.
