The new high school art teacher has big shoes to fill this year, as she takes the place of EHS icon art teacher, Ken Peine. Natasha Head comes to the district with eight years’ experience having taught all grades, K-12, during her years of teaching. With a full time art teacher the students have a wide variety of courses to test out their art skills. Her schedule includes: Art I, Drawing and Painting, Sculpture and Ceramics.
Art I is a class meant to be an introductory course about the elements and principals of art. Students learn the fundamentals of a variety of art techniques and forms. Students should finish this course with a basic understanding of art production, history, and aesthetics. Drawing and painting teaches drawing and painting techniques, starting with very basic drawing skills and building into painting. Students use all types of drawing and painting media such as charcoal, pastels, watercolor, acrylics, and printmaking. Classes should build on their drawing abilities no matter their current skill level and also begin to develop a personal style. Students taking Sculpture class deal with art in the third dimension. Everything created in sculpture is three-dimensional. Students learn the basic materials and techniques used in 3-D design. They also learn to carve, assemble, construct and use a variety of materials from paper to plaster. In Ceramics class Mrs. Head teaches the hand building techniques of clay. Students create functional pieces of art such as bowls, vases, etc, as well as sculptural pieces
