Advanced Studio in Art
This course is designed to develop an art portfolio at an advanced level. The emphasis is on original artwork. Students will build on skills covered in Drawing & Painting, and are encouraged to develop their own artistic style. Through a variety of projects relating to 20th Century and current trends in Art, the student will reflect upon the work of artists which has some bearing on his/her own. Students will learn many ways to generate creative ideas, all in the service of developing an artistic voice. This course provides the interested student opportunities to explore a wide range of media at an advanced level. In addition to the regular classroom instruction, Advanced Art and Portfolio Preparation students will benefit from visits to museums and galleries throughout the year.
