The art courses at Sterling Academy are interactive with readings, videos, vocabulary, and journaling, to keep the students engaged and on task with their assignments. An introduction to visual elements like space, texture, perspective, line, and color, are just a few of the notions that students will encounter on this journey of learning to appreciate art. The course is presented in modules that provide an array of concepts and standards that have been utilized throughout the history of art.
