New Survey of Art Class

By Kathryn

Posted in

Trinity Christian School is excited to welcome Mr. James Brantley to our faculty.  Mr. Brantley brings not only his artistic talent to our school, but a wealth of knowledge as he teaches the Survey of Art class to our tenth graders. He will introduce the students to the world of art, including the history of art from earliest man until the present day. The class will examine the various styles of art that have been followed throughout history, especially since the Renaissance.  These include Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Neo-Classicism, Realism, Romanticism, Impressionism, Classical Realism, Cubism, Surrealism, Abstract Impressionism, and others.  Mr. Brantley will also be teaching art knowledge and skills, with several hands-on projects. He will teach the elements and principles of design.  Students will have hands-on learning in drawing, painting, pottery, caning, print-making, calligraphy, and matting and framing.  The school year will be filled with a plethora of student projects.  Currently, Mr. Brantley has loaned the school pieces of his original artwork to be displayed in the new library and upper grade rhetoric room.  As the students complete their own works of art, their work will slowly replace his pieces on display. Trinity is excited about providing this new opportunity to its students.
