Full Year

Honors Drawing and Painting is designed for the motivated junior or senior artist.  Students will be required to keep an art journal of ideas, interests, drawings and designs.  They will build on techniques learned in the development of their own style through a guided structure of creative problem-solving.  Figure drawing becomes a routine practice throughout the course.  All members of the class will work and think as artists on individual and group work.  Painting techniques will include acrylics on canvas. This course is not intended just for art majors; however, it is an excellent opportunity to build a portfolio for college admission.
