My name is Mr. Osburn, and I am the Art Teacher at Alta Vista High School.  I teach both graphic arts and ceramics.


Graphic Arts

The main focus of the graphic arts class is on color theory, but we also explore both basic art vocabulary and pictorial composition.


Slab building and Mesoamerican architecture are the techniques and themes of the first half of the year in the ceramics class. 

The remainder of the year we explore American Indian architecture and coiled pottery shapes and designs.
