Art III is a two-semester course designed for students who have successfully completed Art II. Art III students will create artworks that demonstrate increasing ability to apply knowledge of the elements of art and principles of design in the research, production, and criticism of visual art. Students are expected to use a broad variety of media, techniques, processes, and tools to create original, complex compositions that are more expressive, to demonstrate internalization of art foundations, and to solve more complex art problems throughout the creative process. Students will critique artwork to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of art upon society as well as societal influences on art. Students will exhibit artwork and will assemble portfolios that reflect personal growth across a breadth of media, demonstrating successful completion of Art III student learning expectations.
NOTE: There will be a $25 lab fee for this class. This will help to cover the cost of more advanced and expensive materials such as paints, glazes, canvases and metals. Please contact me with any questions or concerns. Thank you!
This syllabus is designed to more than cover the frameworks of Art III. This is a tentative schedule and some projects may be added, subtracted or modified to best fit the needs of the students.
