Art Classes for Adults
Here is a drive within all of us to create and express ourselves through art. I believe that drive comes from a need to achieve a balance within ourselves. That balance is felt when you are creating something exactly as you wish it to be. Sometimes other forms of communication may fail to allow us to express ourselves completely, and this is when we turn to art. Adults will focus on working with oil paint on canvas.
AP Studio Art
The AP Studio Art is for art students who are motivated learners and who are serious about developing their ability to communicate their ideas, thoughts, and feelings in visual form. This course is not based on a written exam; instead, students submit a portfolio at the end of the academic year to attempt to earn college credit. Students are required to produce a minimum 20 works of art that reflect issues related to 2D design. Media such as Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Mixed Media, and Collage are utilized. This course enables students to develop quality artworks that demonstrate, strong visual idea development, significant knowledge of the elements and principles of design, and the artistic skill and ability necessary to apply them.
Students may also be required to present previously produced work in portfolio form as evidence of skills and ability prior to enrollment.
