Drawing and Painting III
Drawing and Painting III is a course designed for students who have displayed an interest in and aptitude for the creation of two dimensional artworks and have successfully completed Drawing and Painting I and Drawing and Painting II (or have been recommended to "jump" a level by a previous art educator). Emphasis is placed on portfolio development, creative growth, and the application of existing knowledge to new concepts and media. Students will be encouraged to take risks to work above and beyond previous levels of success. Students are encouraged to come to the art room during study halls and after school as necessary.
• Sketchbook/Journal: Should contain brainstormed lists, sketches, and ideas, as well as artist influences and artwork related to a specified theme, and reaction and personal commentary on classroom discussions and experiences. While this component will not be “due” every Friday as it was in previous Drawing and Painting courses, students should be in the habit of choosing to keep a journal as a means of improving their personal works and recording their artistic journeys.
• Assignments: Must be submitted on time and must be COMPLETE (all components)!
• Course text (resources): Various authors, artists, and photographers from periodicals and the web, as well as numerous artists, literary, and popular culture sources. (Also see the Brain Pickings handout, which is on my teacher website.)
• Portfolio: Students will create both a physical and digital portfolio of their personal works.
