SYLLABUS

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Art III/Proficient Art is designed for students who wish to continue learning about VISUAL ART.  The exploration of techniques, media, and art appreciation continues from Art I and Art II.  Proficient students work primarily with some three dimensional ideas, painting and execution.  Students will be asked to perform at a high level of creativity and craftsmanship.  Students should realize assignments are designed to exercise their imaginations as well as their application skills.  Portfolios will be developed during this course and presented online.

REQUIREMENTS:  Students are required to do all assignments (projects and written work).  Curriculum will follow the North Carolina Standard Course of Study.  Be willing to accept new ideas, methods and experiences that many enhance your work in the future.  Each project should have two compositional sketches, followed by a refined sketch of the preferred composition.  Good drawing skills are important and a necessity.
