This is a one-year advanced art course designed for the highly motivated student who is seriously interested in the study of art. The students develop and refine their artistic vision as they explore a variety of materials and media using sophisticated techniques and concepts. The objectives for the Studio class are for the students to develop more knowledge and skills in a wide variety of media. The students take part in creative exercises and explore different art concepts, a personal vision, and experiment with developing a personal style. Students will demonstrate the constant analysis and refinement of their artwork through their sketches from conceptual ideas through to the finished product. They work on advanced drawing and painting techniques and experiment in printmaking, assemblages and some mixed media works. The students, who then go on to AP, will have already experienced risk-taking and visual problem-solving while discovering their own visions and interests.
