Pre AP Art One
Pre AP Art I
Pre AP Art IThis course is designed for students who intend to pursue art as their electives in High School. Students will be provided the opportunity to develop their art-making skills in order to express their own ideas, thoughts, and feelings. This course goes beyond the regular Art I class. The focus is on developing an ongoing collection or artworks in a portfolio that demonstrates the student's proficiency in using a variety of art media in order to display their knowledge and ability in using the elements and principles of design. The portfolio development is intended to be a preparation for the AP Studio Art course.
The first assignment of the 2015-2016 school year was an introduction to the art element, Line. Students had to create a work of art based on the five ways to vary a line, length , width, direction, texture, and degree of curve. They used pastels on black paper to create the lines and this added a sixth way to vary by the use of color.
Examples from my 3rd and 4th hour classes.
We have continued the study of the elements of art with a unit over space dealing with perspective.
