Students will make new and exciting discoveries about art while working with a variety of materials and art processes. Emphasis is placed on creative expression and developing awareness.
The natural creative abilities of this age group will serve as a springboard for further explorations of the world of art and artist though a wide variety of art materials and processes.
Students will develop a greater awareness of the big idea that informs the world of art and art making. Themes such as self, relationships, and issues of importance from around the globe will inform their expression and exploration.
Students will heighten their knowledge and skills by exploring diverse media, processes, techniques and art forms. Styles of artist, various cultures and their own environment stimulate their artwork.
Teens will improve their skills with familiar and new materials, explore contemporary art ideas and participate in creative problem solving through in-depth studio projects. Students will also receive advice on portfolio preparation.
An art exhibit to which family and friends are invited is held on the final Saturday.
