Foundation in Art
These art drawings are from students in Lisa Benanto's Foundations in Art class at Colonie Central High School. Here, students used their skills to create charcoal portrait faces. Foundations in Art is offered to CCHS students in grades 9-12 and is the only Art offering that satisfies the Art/Music requirement for graduation. This is a survey course that covers the range of art mediums. Students explore broad areas of drawing, painting, two and three dimensional design. The course encourages students to increase their powers of observation and their ability to think creatively.
