Student Book

A dynamic introduction to the building blocks of art.

Exploring Visual Design will teach students about the "grammar" of art and how people from other cultures and times have used a common visual language to express their own unique perspective. As students become fluent in this language, a wealth of studio opportunities help them find their own voice.

  • Captivating images from new art, architecture, and nature
  • In-depth profiles of individual artists and artwork
  • Informational interviews with professional artists
  • Samples of student artwork
  • Studio activities that promote collaboration and self-expression
