Advanced Art


This is a year-long course.

Advanced Art students learn how to research, experiment, and revise their ideas as they develop their own unique style and record the process in sketchbook journals and personal websites. The goal will be to produce and display a sound portfolio of original artwork in mediums and topics of their choice. Materials include graphite, charcoal, pastels, acrylic, oil, mixed media, digital, and dimensional art such as fiber art and sculpture. Art as a community builder and an avenue for positive change will be explored in collaborative projects. Students will be required to participate in a minimum of two art shows in the school year.

Students will research contemporary artists, artistic processes, visit museums, and share their findings with classmates.

Prerequisite: Permission of the teacher and preview of student artwork.
