Mrs. DuPont


In art class, we will build skills in drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, and sculpture. We’ll learn how to think like an artist, talk like an artist, and act like an artist. We’ll learn from the lives of artists who came before us in history, as well as working artists today. We’ll gain a new awareness of art in our daily lives and the careers that bring us art. All the while, we’ll be expressing ourselves and finding our artistic voice!
