Introduction to Studio Arts

The goal of this class is to give students a foundation of basic studio skills and concepts in drawing, painting and sculpture. A limited study of selected Art Historical Styles and Concepts and Art Criticism is introduced. Students keep a sketchbook, which is modeled on the IB Art Journal. Essential skills of researching, analyzing and interpreting artworks, and planning and assessing one’s own work are included in the sketchbook assignments. This class will help to prepare students for the IB Art Program.

This is a year-long course recommended for 10th graders, and open to 11th and 12th graders on a term or full year basis.
