The purpose of this honors art class is to assist students in building a portfolio for college submission and for creating a record of the student's art work. They can use the work from the past years, preferably from junior and senior years. Students will work some assigned projects: sketchbook assignments of observational drawing, life-drawing, self-portraiture, archtecture drawing for example. Students will also look at college requirements for their applications and work on those projects individually. A large part of the process will be individualized. The group projects will help to make sure that every student has enough variety in their portfolio. It also helps for the purpose of critiques to have some mutual projects.
