Advanced Art
Advanced Art is a continuation of Art 1 for 8th grade students, building on core skills to enhance artistic perception, art history knowledge, and artistic skills. Part of the year, we explore the work and styles of artists from around the world and create original works of art based on the style and materials of each artist we study. We also spend part of the year learning the basics of Ceramics, working to make pieces in each of the basic categories of Ceramics and culminating in a final project that incorporates all of the basic skills. Prerequisites: Year Completion of Principles of Art or Portfolio Submission.
