An introductory class that prepares students with the beginning art skills based on the art principles and
elements of design. Using pencil, colored pencils, plaster, acrylic and watercolor paint as a way to explore different types of media as students begin to express their understanding of art.
Students need to successfully complete Foundations I in order to take Foundations II. This class
focuses on using a variety of media, after students have showed mastery of the art elements and principles of design. By the end of the class students are working on a final project of their choice, showing mastery in one media and self-directed learning.
An introductory class that does not require any visual art classes before taking. Students will have an opportunity to work with watercolor, acrylic, and oil paints in this semester long course.
You need to successfully pass Art A/I & Art B/II in order to take this class. It will be an open studio class, where students walk in, pick assignments and are self-motivated to meet project deadlines. If you enjoy working on art and by yourself this is the class for you! This class will help you prepare your portfolio for AP Art, so if you plan on taking AP Art you will want to take this course.
This course is designed for students who are seriously interested in the practical experience of art and wish to develop mastery in drawing, 2-D, and/or 3-D. In AP studio art the exam is based on a portfolio and not a written exam, though students will be writing about their art, the writing enhances the work. While students are building their portfolio they will experience a variety of concepts, techniques, and approaches designed to help them demonstrate their ability as well as their versatility with techniques, problem solving, and ideation. Students will develop a body of work for their concentration that investigates an idea of personal interest to them.
