Prerequisite: Art III
Course Description: Advanced Art reinforces competence and confidence in skills of analysis, evaluation, and creation of works of art. Content and concepts associated with art criticism and aesthetics are central to the refinement of art production skills, and the student-directed approach at this level richly enhances personal expressive abilities. Visual communication and production, cultural context, and art history, judgment and criticism, and aesthetics remain the foundation areas of the standards, and an advanced level of performance in each is necessary. Expectation and Assessments: The students will continue to maintain a portfolio, and the culminating portfolio must give evidence of quality, concentration, and breadth of work produced throughout the high school art program.
