Art (Traditional)

  • Beginning Art (2D Studio Art 2)
    This class is designed for every student wanting to earn an elective credit for graduation. It is also the prerequisite to the Drawing Pathway. Students will experience hands-on projects with basic art media (marker, colored pencil, crayon, graphite, acrylic, pastel, and mixed). Also, Art History, vocabulary, criticism, and aesthetics are covered by required written assignments.

    Art (Drawing 1, 2, 3 Honors)
    This class is designed for students to build on art skills that began in Beginning Art, while adding new techniques and media to their portfolio. Media varies throughout the school year. Drawing, painting, printmaking, and textiles are included in this course. Art History, vocabulary, criticism, and aesthetics are covered through required written assignments.

    AP Portfolio (AP 2D Design+ AP Drawing)
    Juniors and seniors who have completed at least two years of high school art classes, working with all types of 2D media (including digital), are prepared to take on the Advanced Placement Portfolio. After a portfolio and sketchbook interview, students can sign-up through their guidance counselor with art teacher's approval. This course has a rigorous deadline schedule with a digital submission required. There is also a written portion to the AP Exam.
