Foundations in Art
These scratch art drawings were made by students in Patrick Kelley's Foundations in Art class at Colonie Central High School. Students started from a black inked background. Then, they used a scratch tool to scrape away and create the hand drawings showing in this gallery. 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.
