I Course description:

ART II

This advanced art course continues to provide the students with the foundational skills needed for future advanced coursework in the arts with an emphasis in 2D art and design. This course will allow students to expand their concepts of the visual arts, improve their skills and learn new ways to be visually expressive. It will enable students to advance their drawing skills, and reinforce their knowledge in the elements and principles of design.  It will encourage exploration of color theory, examine contemporary art theories and social issues in art through the development of a visual narrative and introduce them to portrait painting. Digital photography and a variety of digital technology will be used to allow students to develop their repetoire of imagery by photographing their own references prior to painting.

Students will also continue to study the History of Art and the significant developments that have shaped the major schools of art.  This course will enhance young artists' capacity to understand and recognize when their visual pieces are complete by participating in self evaluative and group critique processes. Students will explore influences from various cultures, including their own, which enhance the creation of assigned projects. 

Students will be exposed to careers in art and opportunities to produce and present their work professionally and publicly, as appropriate.
