Visual Arts 12

Course Outline

Visual Arts 12 leads students to becoming independent young artists who approach their physical and social world with a sense of critical and creative inquiry. Along the way, students will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of projects; some of which are teacher directed and others are student directed. The breadth of projects should allow each student to work through a range of media and aesthetic ideas while also gaining depth in a particular area of focus.  Students should also examine and respond to the art and visual ideas of others, art history and art from various cultures, art theory, and contemporary studies, particularly in relation to how it may reflect their own work and/or life experiences. Students should develop a portfolio that models the best of the depth, breadth and quality of their work. A public exhibit of student work is also encouraged.
