Honors art overview

Honors Art overview

  • Honors Art is a studio course in which the student develops a high level of personal creative expression, aesthetic judgment, and technical skill in visual art.

  • The goal of the Honors Art course is to develop each student further into the art making process. The foundation is to build perception skills and help students gain control over their craft while working from direct observation coupled with their own creative insight.

  • My approach is high expectation, repetition, and experimentation. Building confidence and exploration of an idea is the basis of development in Honors Art.


Honors art goals grading exhibits

Honors Art Goals, Grading & Exhibits

  • Goals; Honors Art is a direct lead into AP Studio Art. During the second semester, students begin a unit on a concentration. Students start an abbreviated series of works to be considered as a possible direction to further develop. In the meantime, more tradition approaches to skills and techniques continue to develop.

  • Grading percentages; 50% class assignments, 25%art journal, 15% figure drawing, class exercises, creative planning, 10% critique participation, 5% exhibition.

  • Honor Art students are second in line to the contributors of the Nash Art Exhibit. As part of the course requirement each student takes part in the food organization for opening night. Also each Honors Art student is required to display a range of 4-6 works carefully selected

Field trips and fun stuff

Field Trips and Fun Stuff

  • Students enrolled in Honors or AP Studio courses have an opportunity for one to two field trips per school year. Since 2003 I have designed a 2-3 night trips for students to travel to New York City. We have also taken trips to Pittsburgh museums and exhibits during school time and outside of school time.

  • Mr. Hawbaker & I have also taken student abroad to Italy, France and Spain. We are currently considering a trip to Italy for the summer of 2011 (Planning and enrollment will possibly being this spring).

Ap studio art overview

AP Studio Art Overview

  • This course offers an in-depth study and structure of portfolio building for college preparatory students. It is designed to meet the demands of the AP STUDIO Art Syllabus published by the College Board.

  • Students will be prepared for the AP Studio Art exam in the Drawing Portfolio and/or 2D Design Portfolio.

  • Students will work with a variety of media, as well as personally selected media while preparing to complete a sequential portfolio.

  • The work created meets the criteria of AP Studio Art portfolios and will also double as college entry portfolio application requirements.

  • Students express their ideas and understanding of their artwork in a written commentary that accompanies their body of work.


Ap studio art goals

AP Studio ArtGoals

  • The goal of this advanced placement course is to take each student as far as they can into the art making process. The foundation is to build strong visual perception skills and help students gain control over their craft while working from direct observation coupled with their own creative insight.

  • My approach is to individualize instruction and teach the needs of each student. High energy, commitment and adequate previous experience in the visual arts are the major contributors to the expected qualities of a good art student.

  • In short; High energy, commitment and risk- taking is key to success.


Ap studio grading exhibit

AP Studio Grading & Exhibit

  • Grading percentages; 40% class assignments, 25%art journal, 15% figure drawing, class exercises, creative planning, 5% critique participation, 10% exhibition. Grading is based on total pionts

  • Critiques; there are no tests in the traditional sense. Periodically, over the course of the year, scheduled group critiques and individually scheduled critiques of each student’s body of work are conducted. Aside from building stronger bonds in the classroom, group critiques create an opportunity for students to have their work viewed by peers who have not seen its progress as closely. Evaluation follows the written rubric in the AP Studio course description.

  • *Exhibit and participation in NASH Art Exhibit participation is required


Nash art exhibit

NASH Art Exhibit

  • Students have had work on display at various venues in the Community. Student class work is exhibited on a continuous basis throughout the school year in the Nash Art Gallery.

  • AP Studio Art Students are the major contributors of the Nash Art Exhibit. As part of the course requirements each student takes a role to participate in the opening night events. Each of these students are also required to display a range of 6-10 works carefully selected and accompanied by written commentary. A “ringer” piece is designed and constructed of a new medium for that particular student.


Ap studio art drawing or 2d design portfolio

AP Studio ArtDrawing or 2D Design Portfolio

  • The Studio Art Exam

  • The Advanced Placement Program in Studio Art:

  • is a performance-based visual exam.

  • Each student develops and submits a portfolio that serves as a direct demonstration of achievement.

  • The term "drawing or 2D design” is used very broadly; all sorts of art that involves directly making marks on a surface can fit into the portfolio criteria.

  • This includes not only work in traditional drawing media -- such as pencils, ink,

  • and pastels -- but also many kinds of painting, printmaking, mixed media and other forms of expression.

  • The 2D design portfolio may also be works of photography and digital art.

  • * Sculpture and 3D works of art are not permitted in the drawing and 2d design portfolios.

Components of Breadth Section

  • Primary Focus for 1st term of AP Art Studio

  • The Breadth section shows the range of experimentation and experience in drawing.

  • It is presented as 12 slides, each of which shows a different work. In addition to its

  • quality, each work is scored on the degree to which it actually shows a variety of

  • approaches to drawing.

  • 15 - 20 works to be completed for AP Art Studio class

  • 12 slides submitted for this section of the portfolio

  • Student work will encompass a wide variety of projects

  • exploring multiple media and techniques.

  • Students will also be exposed to art history with a particular

  • concentration in modern art and criticism that will assist in

  • adding to the scope of the work being produced.

Components of Concentration Section

Primary Focus of 2nd semester

The Concentration section shows the student's in-depth commitment to an idea in art

that is personally fascinating. It is presented as 12 slides, some of which may be details

of works. The stress is on a coherent idea and development of the work, in addition to

the artistic success of the work.

  • 24-30 works to be completed for AP Studio Class

  • 12 slides to be submitted for this section of the portfolio

  • - some slides may be detail views of the works done for this section

  • Works will be unified by an underlying idea (theme) that displays

  • visual coherence

  • Four main areas for consideration on scoring:

  • 1) coherence / development

  • 2) quality of the concept / idea presented

  • 3) degree of development and investigation

  • 4) quality of the work and technique

Student Commentary

Briefly define the nature of your concentration project.

My concentration consists of fruits and vegetables. I began doing realistic representations of only fruit and related

objects and then incorporated other objects into the picture. Next I distorted the fruits and vegetables and put them

into environments in which they normally are not.

Briefly describe the development of your concentration project and the sources of your ideas.

You may refer to specific slides as examples.

I began this concentration by emulating the American still-life painters. In slide two, I took a closer look at the fruit

magnifying an orange and an apple to capture extreme detail. In slides 3-5, an apple is placed in a strange environment

with shapes unlike the round shape of the apple. I then began incorporating fruit in with unrelated objects that did complement

the interesting shapes and vibrant colors of the fruit. In slide 8, I started enlarging the fruits and vegetables to personify them.

In doing this, I also put them into environments that complemented their natural shapes. For example, in slide 10, the long

carrot lies in bed, and in slide 11, the curved banana looks as if it is sitting upright in the tub. Finally, in slide 12, the pear

becomes the environment, acting as shelter.

What medium or media did you use?

I used oil on canvas, charcoal, and pencil to develop my concentration.*

Quality

Scoring Rationale:

These complex and purposeful works demonstrate an excellent mastery of drawing and painting skills.

The surfaces are subtle, rich, and sophisticated. The works are well-resolved, confident, and evocative

compositions that create a personal narrative. The works display a sensitivity in the use of value, color

and subject matter. The pieces are consistently high in quality and display excellent thinking and

decision-making skills on the part of the student.
