Studio Art 2D


Course Description:

Studio Art 2-D is a one-semester course designed for students who have successfully completed Art I.  Studio Art 2-D is a teacher-directed and/or student-directed course in which students further explore, apply, and move toward mastery of the elements of art and principles of design in specific areas of art, such as painting, drawing, printmaking, digital art, photography, mixed media, surface design, or other 2-D media.  Student art will demonstrate evidence of complex problem-solving skills, higher order thinking, risk taking, imagination, and innovation.  Students will exhibit art and will assemble portfolios that reflect personal growth in media, techniques, processes, and tools used to create complex 2-D compositions.  Student compositions will cover a breadth of media and subject matter and will demonstrate successful completion of Studio Art 2-D student learning expectations.  Art I is a prerequisite for this course.
