This course is designed for the serious art student. It will cover a variety of art methods and materials. Part of the course will be structured to ensure a high level of competence in specific skill areas such as drawing from life. Students will also explore career options and learn to present art work properly for job interviews and college admissions by photographing their work in slide form. Projects created in this class, as well as art work that was completed previously, will be gathered and evaluated for a portfolio if students wish to do so. Representatives from various art schools will give presentations to this class and will offer feedback on students’ art work. Over the course of the trimester, students will be expected to create 10-12 portfolio quality pieces. Students should expect to do substantial work outside of class. In addition to developing their technical skills, students will be challenged to think critically and creatively about their own work and the work of their peers. They will be expected to participate actively in class critiques and discussions.
