courses such as

Foundation Art, Drawing, 3D Design or do you offer yearlong courses that

incorporate various themes? Have you switched from yearlong to semester

courses or vice versa? </x-quoted>

I teach in a suburban high school with 840 students grade 9-12.

At this point there are three full time art teachers teaching Photo I, Photo2,
General Art (foundation), Art and the Computer I, Art and the Computer 2, and
Art Contract.

All of the above courses meet for one semester. I really like this because it
gives me a fresh start in the middle of the year (fresh kids, new ideas etc.).

Our average class size is 20, which is managable. There are 7 periods in a
day, that are 42 minutes long.

Between the three teachers, we are bursting at the seams, we could use another
1/2 time teacher.

I hope this answers some of your questions.
