Mr. Ramiro Garcia


Welcome!  I am delighted to have you in my class.  My goal is to lead an exciting visual arts course in a safe and creative environment. In Art 1 you will learn the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design and employ the concepts in works of art using a variety of media (paint, pencil, charcoal, watercolor, clay, etc.). In sculpture, you will learn how to sculpt with cardboard and clay. You will also learn how to throw on the pottery wheel. All students will discuss personal artwork and the art of their peers in teacher-led or small group discussions in order to grow as artists.  Let’s get started!

Tutoring times are on Tuesdays (8:05 am - 8:25 am) and Wednesdays (4:40 pm - 5:00pm).

About me: I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California.
