Art 1 fulfills the Fine Arts requirement of Rockwall High School students. This course allows the student to explore a variety of media throughout the year including graphite, ink, charcoal, painting, ceramics, sculpture, digital art, and mixed media. Most students have little artistic background; therefore, my goal as an an art 1 teacher is to build both confidence and technical abilities. Many of our students take additional art courses which include Pre-AP art 1, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, and AP art history.
