Middle and Upper School Art

Arts

Middle School

The middle school art classes build on the knowledge that the students have learned in lower school. In middle school art there is focus on expression and materials used. We learn about the studio habits; we use the core art standards and build on those standards through the projects we do. We also learn about various artists from the past and present.

 

Art 1

This course covers a sequential development of different forms of art media (pencil, chalk, and charcoal), and art types( drawing, painting, sculpture),with an emphasis on realism. An emphasis is placed on investigations of: the art elements, the process of creation and the subjects of art. Upon completion, students should be able to communicate a complete knowledge of drawing, and its impact on the arts and society.

AP Art 

The AP Studio Art Drawing course is intended for highly motivated students who are seriously interested in the study of art. AP course requirements are significantly more rigorous and requires a serious commitment and accomplishment while enrolled. It is recommended for the AP student be able to create fine art by either having previous training in art or by demonstrating that ability through a portfolio.

 

AP Studio Art:

AP Studio Art Drawing course strives for quality of production and experience in the investigation of drawing styles, techniques, design principles and reflection of historical influences in drawing or design.The course is designed as an intensive one‐year program. The course is the infusion of new ideas and is constructed around meaning and an enduring idea. The AP Studio Art portfolios are designed for students who are seriously interested in the actual creation of art. AP Studio Art is not based on a written exam; instead, students submit portfolios for evaluation at the end of the school year. The AP Studio Art Program consists of three portfolios — 2-D Design, 3-D Design and Drawing — corresponding to the most common college foundation courses. The AP Program is a cooperative endeavor that helps high school students complete college-level courses and permits colleges to evaluate acknowledge and encourage that accomplishment through the granting of appropriate credit and placement.
