Advanced techniques in drawing, picture making, collage, sculpture, and painting. Art history and the process of image creation are the key elements in this course.
This course builds on the skills developed in Visual Art 10. This studio-based course emphasizes in-depth work and the creative process. Projects may include pencil drawing, ink drawing, oil pastel portraits, acrylic, watercolour, and clay. Students will learn about other artists through an Artist study. Students are encouraged to develop creativity and originality in their work. Students are required to purchase a 9 x 12 sketchbook, drawing pencils, metal sharpener, erasers, paintbrushes, including a fine detail brush.
This course features the introduction of more advanced techniques. Units in colored pencil renderings and acrylics will be studied. Students will continue to build on the previous artistic experience in a variety of two- and three-dimensional formats.
