Honors Art -
Proficient and Advanced
This course provides students with the opportunity to use the skills and knowledge that they have gained in their previous art classes as they develop their own body of work based upon themes of their choice. In this class, students are required to keep a sketchbook in which they plan/draw out their ideas, research and critique artwork, and reflect upon their progress. They will also complete studio projects. Projects are designed to become gradually more open-ended and self-directed as the course progresses. Students will learn how to write an artist statement and photograph artwork, with the ultimate goal being the development of the beginning of a cohesive art portfolio.
