art I

Art-1 is an introductory art class for beginners.
The curriculum is for a year-long class. The structure is based on learning the Elements and Principles of Design. Each element is a unit with a choice of assignments to practice and to apply the concepts of the Art Theory.

art II

Art-2 is more advanced class, focusing on experimenting with art media. This is also a year-long class. Once students have learned the basics at Art-1, it's time to experiment and to try different art techniques and media to choose their favorite. Each assignment is a different media, many of them are mix-media projects.

draw&paint

Drawing & Painting is advanced art class, focusing on academic skills of drawing and painting. It is a semester class that targets students, who plan an artistic career in future. Some of the assignments are college-level, just a bit adapted.

art history

Art History is exactly what it is. I included the textbook worksheets that I am using. There is also a time line with worksheets for notes for each art period. It's a great teaching tool that worked great for me. I also made flash cards with world masterpieces for students to memorize. Unit exams are also included.
Art history - based on a textbook "History of Art for Young People"

Digital Photography - I

This course in Digital Photography is designed to develop your skills in pixel-based photography. In this introductory course in digital photography, we will use digital power to create, edit, post and share our images electronically.The course is intended for beginner photographers.
It has been over six years as I am working on this site. And I am still in a process of editing, changing, updating, and additing new lessons. (Please, add a link to my site if you use any information or materials from here. Thank you.)
I am very grateful to my colleague and a good friend Norm Preo for sharing some of his art projects with me. Some of the assignments were inspired by other artists and art teachers. I tried to include all credits where credits due.)
