Honors Art

This course is designed for upper school students talented in the visual arts and seriously committed to the process of making art. Students are recommended by the department based on evidence of superior artwork, behavior and attitude. New students to the program may need to submit a portfolio for review by the art department and be recommended by former art instructors. The curriculum is determined primarily by the student, with the teacher serving as a coach. Students submit written proposals near the beginning of the semester. Any medium can be employed with emphasis on the creative process of problem solving. Various projects will be introduced depending upon students’ prior art experiences. Some students elect to build their college portfolios as their primary curriculum.
