                      -Coach Tharp-



                        WHY ARE WE HERE?                               

     Our mission as a class is to develop our visual abilities and apply them as a tool for achievement across the school curriculum.  We will learn how all cultures, commerce, and walks of life whether local or global can communicate to one another through the language of art.  We will do this through exploration of different art mediums, tools, and skills we develop on the way.
