Welcome to Edwardsburg High School Visual Arts!
EHS offers several Visual Art classes including Art Fundamentals, Drawing, and Painting, Advanced Art 1, Advanced Art 2, Ceramics 1 and Ceramics 2. Each class focuses on art terms and vocabulary, building skills in various mediums, learning new techniques, and learning about art criticism and aesthetics. Students will study artworks created throughout history in addition to learning about contemporary artists working today.
