  • AP Studio Art: 2D

    AP Studio Art: 2D, usually part of a two-year sequence, is designed for students who are seriously interested in the practical experience of art, and studio art is one of the options students may pursue. Students submit an extensive portfolio of work for evaluation. Expectations for the quality of work are set at the college level, and students are admitted to this course through a demonstration of superior effort and achievement, self-motivation, and previous art experience. The portfolio will consist of approximately 30 works of art that excel in concept, composition and execution. Students enrolled in an AP course are required to take the corresponding AP exam in May.
  • Introduction to Printmaking

    Students will explore a unique means of personal expression resulting in the creation of multiple original images. Through the various printmaking methods—monotype, relief (linoleum/woodblock), intaglio (etching or engraving), lithograph, screen print (T-shirt design) and a combination of methods—students will develop drawing and design skills. The organization of pictorial ideas and individual creativity will be encouraged through the multitude of creative possibilities in printmaking.
