Students will continue with the Advanced Studio program to develop a comprehensive portfolio of artworks. Through a two year sequence of alternating projects, each student enrolled in Advanced Studio and Portfolio Preparation will complete a substantial body of work for his/her portfolio. Students wishing to finalize their portfolio in Art may do so in their senior year with Portfolio Preparation, or the more rigorous AP course. The course will include a digital imaging unit, whereby each student will learn to photograph and edit their digital portfiolio. In addition to the regular classroom instruction, Advanced Art and Portfolio Preparation students will benefit from visits to museums and galleries throughout the year. Students are required to keep a research journal, and must present an exit portfolio for course credit.
