Traditional Art Practices: Abstraction

Teacher: Mr. Pelham
Extra Help: Monday, Art Room from 3:00 - 4:00

In this course, students will explore representation and abstraction through a variety of mediums and materials. Representational art is recognizable as a person, place, or thing. Abstraction is the process of distorting or avoiding representation such that an image or object does not resemble a recognizable subject. The subject of abstract art is often the materials used to create it, and the shapes, forms, lines, and colors which it is composed of. Throughout the semester students will learn about the history of abstraction, as well as contemporary artists that make abstract art, and the various intentions artists have for making abstract art. Students will investigate abstraction through a series of projects which explore the relationship between representation and abstraction in a variety of mediums and materials.
