Art 4 further develops what students began in Art 3. This class will emphasize the exploration of new and creative approaches to art making within the student’s series of works. Students will also have the opportunity to explore different approaches to art making, which can include printmaking, acrylics, and oil paint. Students will learn proper, professional preparation and display of their work in a public venue (coffee shop, gallery, bookstore, etc.) as well as how to approach galleries for selection and participation in a group show. In addition, the course will include professional artists’ visits to explain their work and their experiences in the field of fine art, graphic design, and illustration. Art 4 is perfect preparation for students interested in AP Studio Art and/or improving their portfolio of work for college.
