Art I is designed to expose students to a variety of 2D and 3D mediums with an emphasis on the elements of art and principals of design. Students will explore a variety of mediums including, but not limited to drawing, pastel, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, glass fusion, and digitally generated art.
Pre AP Art is a course designed for the serious art student who wishes to further explore art elements, design principles, art mediums, and advanced techniques. The Pre AP Art students will be creating approximately 12 pieces to represent the breadth portion of their AP portfolio. A variety of mediums may be explored including, but not limited to, ceramics, mosaic, paper mache, warm glass, polymer clay, graphite, colored pencil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic painting, and digitally-generated art.
AP Studio Art students are expected to perform at the college freshman level. Students must commit to a vigorous program in the creation of their portfolio. The 24-piece portfolio must demonstrate the exploration and investigation of all three critical aspects of an AP Drawing Portfolio–quality, breadth, and concentration, using the AP Studio Art poster for reference. The AP Studio Art Drawing Portfolio requires significantly more commitment and accomplishment. Work outside the classroom is necessary and expected (approx. 6-10 hours per week).
