    The purpose of this class is to reinforce your understanding of the Elements of Art and Principles of Design, with a focus on drawing and painting using a variety of media, subjects, and art styles. The assignments will require a high level of thought, detail, skill, and craftsmanship. For that reason, we will be spending more time on each assignment than in Production Arts 1, allowing us to go more deeply into the creation of finished pieces. Some artwork may be selected to show in galleries or juried exhibitions. We will also engage in community art projects and portfolio preparation.
