Advanced Art is designed for students who are seriously interested in the practical experience of art. Advanced Art is highly focused on the completion of studio art. Students are expected to become independent thinkers and to apply their knowledge (gained from Intro, Drawing, Painting. and Ceramics Courses) of the Elements and Principles to their work (regardless of media) in order to demonstrate mastery of advanced level skills and concepts. Ongoing critical analysis through group and individual critiques provide students with opportunities to learn to analyze their own work and their peers’ work. In addition, students are expected to create work outside of the classroom in the form of sketching.
