Prerequisites: successful completion of a full year of Art 1

Course available to: Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors.

Students will continue to build art vocabulary and apply it on an every day basis. Students will apply their knowledge of elements and principles of art, art history and aesthetics by creating art projects using a variety of techniques in painting, drawing, print making, sculpture, and other forms of fine art. The course is a studio type class. The focus of the course is experimenting with different art media. Students will try a variety of art techniques and materials to find what they like the most. Assignments must be completed according to times/dates as noted when assignment is given. If a student is absent, student must make up missed work. Making up assignments is the student’s responsibility. Students are required to participate in art activities at all times Full credit will be given to all FINISHED assignments turned in on time. Projects will be graded on the basis of appropriate incorporation of artistic elements, creativity/originality, proper use of art tools, and timely turning in of an assignment. Students must follow the teacher’s instructions to fulfill the project requirements. Art 2 is an advanced art course and expectations of your art work will be high.
