    Studio in Art 2 
     
     
    Studio in Art 2 is a sequel to the foundation course Studio in Art 1. Starting with Cubism and ending with Contemporary Art, Studio in Art 2 weaves art history with hands-on art projects. Mediums include graphite, colored pencils, acrylic paint, clay, watercolors, pastels, and cut paper collage. Discussions of styles and techniques, blended with exploration of global art beyond the western world, will expand and broaden the concepts from the knowledge gained in the foundation art course. Structured lessons, notes, and research will be balanced with creative choice, and will allow the students to thrive while creating personal compositions. Students will be able to draw, paint, sculpt, print, or collage their ideas for each unit depending on their individual interests and abilities. Grades are based on class participation & completion and reflection of assignments.

     

    Studio in Art 1 is recommended before this course.
     
    Studio in Art 2 is offered as a full course for 1 credit, or can be taken as a single semester for a 1/2 credit.
     
    Studio in Art 2 gives students enrollment priority into Ceramics. *
     
    Students who are interested in taking ceramics in a future semester will be encouraged to hand build with clay in this class.
