Advanced Art

High school students who want to pursue art in-depth now have the option of applying for Advanced Art classes. These classes will provide motivated and hardworking students a chance to explore their favorite types of art independently.


The prerequisite classes for Advanced Art include Intro to Art and Drawing. Additional art classes need to be taken beforehand depending on the students’ interests. For example, if a student wants to take Advanced Painting, s/he must take Intro to Art, Drawing, and Painting first. To be eligible to apply, students need to have earned an A- average or better in their previous art classes.


Additionally, interested students will need a teacher recommendation and must submit a portfolio of their artwork. The portfolio will include photographs of four artworks with written statements explaining the items. The portfolio can include projects made in school or at home, but artworks selected need to demonstrate interest and skill. Interested students can pick up application materials with Mrs. Pearson.
