The goal of this course is to provide students with a thorough and in-depth understanding of the fundamental concepts of art, building on what they have learned in middle school through rich and meaningful creative experiences. Over the duration of the school year, students will participate in a number of thematic units that not only involve the production of art, but also the practice of art criticism, aesthetics, and the introduction of significant artists, artistic movements, and historical references. These units are driven by guided questions that are designed to develop students' critical thinking and creative problem solving abilities. Students will explore a variety of techniques and media including drawing, painting, working with layouts and compositions, printmaking and much more!

Studio in Art: Supply List
Lancaster High SchoolMrs. PerrySmith & Mrs. Grobe
Below please find a list of the mandatory supplies you will need for Studio in Art.
Many parents ask why students must purchase individual supplies for their art course. Students will need these specific, quality supplies on hand to work independently on various projects and homework assignments. Each student will be responsible for his or her own supplies. The supplies will be used regularly in class as well and will be kept in the classroom except for specific assignments.
Many parents ask why these supplies must be purchased at Hyatt’s. We have tried to save you time and money by preordering all the needed supplies through Hyatt’s so that you can avoid driving to multiple stores hunting for each listed item. Tell the clerk that you are from Lancaster High School so they can direct you to the supply table. Please leave a message for your child’s art teacher 686-3255 ext. 9355 (Mrs. Grobe) if the cost of supplies presents a financial hardship.
