Art Classes

By: McKenna Babbitt

Mr. Anderson teaches many types of art classes here at Diamond Fork Junior High such as Art Foundations, Drawing, and 3D Art. Most students at Diamond Fork participate in the Art Foundations class before entering the Drawing or 3D Art classes.  Art Foundations teaches the basics of art from both drawing and 3D such as shading, color schemes, clay, ect.  After you complete the Art Foundations class you could choose to participate in either Drawing or 3D Art - depending on which you are more interested in.
