Courses Taught

Art III

Two-Dimensional Design II In this advanced studio art course, students produce in two-dimensional art forms; drawing, printmaking, painting, experimental media, and graphic design. This course will include individual critiques, written reports, a portfolio, and participation in competitive exhibits.

Pre-Advanced Placement Studio Art

This studio art course is designed for advanced visual arts students who plan to take Advanced Placement Art in the Spring term. Students are challenged to produce creative, sophisticated, and well-crafted art work of the quality required in the Breadth Section of an Advanced Placement portfolio.

Advanced Placement Studio Art

The AP Studio Art portfolios are designed for students who are seriously interested in the practical experience of art. AP Studio Art is not based on a written examination; instead, students submit portfolios for evaluation at the end of the school year. The AP Program offers three portfolios: Drawing, 2-D Design, and 3-D Design. The portfolios share a basic, three-section structure, which requires the student to show a fundamental competence and range of understanding in visual concerns (and methods). Each of the portfolios asks the student to demonstrate a depth of investigation and process of discovery through the Concentration section (Section II). In the Breadth section (Section III), the student is asked to demonstrate a serious grounding in visual principles and material techniques. The Quality section (Section I) permits the student to select the works that best exhibit a synthesis of form, technique, and content.

Photography I

The Photography I course is designed for the highly motivated who is interested in the study of photography as an art form. Students will learn the proper use of a 35mm film camera as well as digital SLR cameras. Topics also include a survey of photographic history, composition and technical skills, traditional darkroom and computer lab production, cultural literacy, presentation of artwork, proper critique methods, and career opportunities.
