Art Studio II will build upon the foundation begun in Art Studio I. Students will continue building their abilities to use the Elements and Principles of Design in their own artwork. They will also continue their study of Drawing, Pen and Ink, Charcoal, Pastels, and Painting (acrylic and watercolor). Students will begin creating a portfolio of work based upon concepts began and developed in their sketchbook. Instruction will include observational drawing exercises, viewing great artwork from the past, step by step demonstrations and personal critiques. This is a studio course and time will be provided in class for working on projects within a community of other artists. Homework will average 2-3 hours per week.
Minimum age of 12 on the first day of class. Successful completion of VSA Art Studio I or comparable course in the previous 24 months is strongly encouraged.
