This is a 101 course intended for students who have no background in the stock market. Disclaimer: This course is not meant to encourage/discourage investing in the stock market nor does it involve risking real money.

A14094: Untitled (Art Making in Isolation) in HSSP Summer 2020 (Jul. 11, 2020)
Quarantine should not stop you from being creative! In this class, we aim to teach basic art skills that are applicable to a wide range of fields. We will share fundamentals of drawing and design through both hands-on and digital activities. We will focus on life drawing such as portraits and figure drawing while observing (virtual) streets and one another. But that is not it! We will also be sharing quick fun facts about the brain works to process art. Note that this is an introductory art course for those with little to no prior experience. We will later be using GIMP as our free digital art program.
