The focus of this course is directed towards creating a unique body of work in painting and drawing. In class, students will work on strengthening their painting and drawing skills while developing a unique and personal vision. Students will be encouraged to explore and develop their personal interests and ideas. Throughout the course, students will be introduced to a variety of sources and materials to explore different media, methods, processes and possibilities to create art. The instructor will give brief slide lectures and conduct demonstrations as needed. In addition, the instructor will give individual guidance through one-on-one discussion with each student as projects are developed. Students are required to maintain a sketchbook and work outside of class. This course may be taken as AP or IB Visual Arts. Please see the AP or IB Visual Arts description.
