    Hello! My name is Liz Sprackland and I am starting my 17th year teaching Art. I am going into my 11th year here at Wasatch High School and am just as excited to be here as I was the first day I got hired. I encourage students to be creative and think independently while exploring their own path and growth in the Arts.

    The 2019-2020 school year will be another exciting art year at Wasatch High School. My classes will be the following:
     
    1. Drawing is a basic class that should be taken after Foundations and before many other advanced art classes. Mediums used are pencil, ink, charcoal, colored pencils and mixed mediums. Students will explore drawing through photographs, observations, and chosen reference materials
     
    2. Painting One is the basics of painting using acrylic, tempera, and watercolor paint. Students review color theory and paint on smaller canvases.
     
    3. Advanced Painting continues to further the students' knowledge of painting techniques with larger canvases and more challenging curriculum.
     
    4. Advanced Drawing 1020 Concurrent Enrollment, UVU. (Basic Drawing for non-majors). This is a concurrent enrollment course that is available to all junior and senior high school students with a 3.0 GPA or above. This course satisfies a 3 credit general education requirement at all Utah colleges. It also offers a high school semester art credit. This course introduces basic drawing techniques and emphasizes the fundamentals of observation-based, in-class assignments,  and homework practice that build skills in drawing.  This course can also be taken for non-college credit.
