Merry Noel Balcar

Art 1 Teacher

6th-8th grades

Welcome to Art 1 at New Braunfels Middle School.  

Art 1 classes will be taught with emphasis on the elements and principles of design.  The elements are line, value, space, form, shape, color, and texture.  The principles are unity, contrast, variety, pattern, movement, emphasis, and balance.  We will study about artists, cultural arts, and historical art genre.  I will encourage critical thinking and creativity as students apply the elements and principles of art to produce drawings, paintings, sculptures, weavings, prints, etc. through a variety of media and methods.

I look forward to getting to know and work with your student this year!  Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns!
