Welcome to Dixon

Art Education

We are beginning the Fall 2014 semester! Please feel free to come by and see classrooms 203 or 102.

 Feel free to contact Mr. Wertz via the email links above or call the school at 910-347-2958 to make an appointment.

Beginning Level

Students will be learning methods on how to draw, paint and sculpt through hands-on projects, criticizing art, and viewing historical and contemporary artwork. 


Advanced art techniques are the focus. Beginning standards are designed for students with no or limited K-8 progression in Visual Arts education.  


Student driven courses. These students are knowledgeable in the use of materials and techniques. Their focused media and skills are being fine-tuned in projects they will display at the end of the semester. 10 or more portfolio works created by the student are selected to be placed in a binder and electronically with their resume and artist statement. This portfolio should be a showcase of their work for a future college, employer etc.  

 AP Art History

 This course is designed to provide the same benefits to secondary school students as those provided by an introductory college course in art history; an understanding and knowledge of architecture, sculpture, painting, and other art forms within diverse historical and cultural contexts.Through qualifying AP Exam scores, students can earn credit, advanced placement, or both at most four-year colleges and universities in the United States. Because policies vary across institutions, students should obtain a college's AP policy in writing. Encourage your students to find this information by using the AP Credit Policy Info search tool.
