RE: Art Fundamentals course

We have about 130 students in our upper school. I offer a drawing and a
color/design class every semester that switch. In other words, during B
Block I will offer drawing in the fall and color/design in the spring.
During C Block I will offer color/design in the fall and drawing in the
spring. These are my prerequisites for other classes. That way, in one
year a student will have the required prerequisites--and will have two
chances to fit it into their schedules. Does that make sense? It does
help to have a two year art requirement for graduation (can be filled
with performing art, visual art, yearbook).

Our school has less than 400 students and we offer diverse 1-Semester
courses, alternating some every other year. So we offer about a dozen
studio courses as well as art history. Students love diving right into
our current classes. My question is, how big of a school do you need to
offer an art fundamentals course which could ideally be a prereq for
many ceramics, painting and drawing courses? Our problem is that
students need to be able to draw, and our MS doesn't offer much art for
