Advanced Art

Advanced art is for the serious, self-motivated student, who wants advanced studio time for creating 2-dimensional art.  Students in this class will be required to complete a minimum of 4 projects.  Special emphasis will be placed on creativity and creating original and authentic work.  Students will be expected to explore different media within the four projects. Also, students will need to stretch their past knowledge and step out of their comfort zone. For example, if a student excels at pencil portraits, the expectation would be that the student attempt a portrait in a new media (acrylic paint, ink, etc.) or a different subject matter.


This course may be taken multiple times.
