Class Description: The Studio Art Portfolio course is intended for extremely motivated students with previous art instruction that are determined to produce quality artwork at an advanced level. Students will complete a minimum of 15 high quality works to create a visual portfolio in drawing, 2-D design or 3-D design using a variety of media and techniques (drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media, digital, sculpture) to express feelings, ideas, and observations of a personal nature and interest. Students will be required to keep a sketchbook outside of class, create an e-portfolio, write a self- reflection paper, and display their artwork in the school show at the end of the school year. Students will also be expected to participate in individual and group critiques, enter competitions/contests, and attend trips to art museums/galleries/studios. Students will connect with artists of their career interest, preferably in the Wichita area. Class Objectives:

1. Students will plan and produce a portfolio of artworks using media and techniques in an innovative way, showing evidence of experimentation and risk taking.

2. Students will develop technical skills and creatively employ the elements of art and principles of design in high quality work.

3. Students will display and expose their work in school show and art contests.

4. Students will research comprehensively and become knowledgeable in art history, art movements, techniques and art careers.

5. Students will expand their technological skills to include an e-portfolio.

6. Students will constructively critique and discuss artworks in individual and group

7. Students will develop their arts learning skills and record thoughts about their work and portfolio process through ongoing work in sketchbook.

Learning Strategies: Hands-on artmaking; art discussions and critiques; sketchbook; research, presentations and competitions. Expectations, Rules, and Regulations:

a. Attendance and class participation: Be ON TIME to the art class to avoid

unnecessary interruptions and come prepared to actively contribute in classroom

discussions and activities.

b. Assignments. Students are expected to maintain a personal sketchbook to be used for

developing ideas, brainstorming, developing drawing skills and assignments.

c. Grading: Grading is based on the completion of a creative portfolio (minimum of

15), visual journal, e-portfolio, written paper, class participation and critiques, working habits and behavior, and participations in art contests and school show.

d. Clean up procedures: Students are responsible to clean up their work area and

materials after every art project and to respect and care of ALL art materials and tools.

BREADTH

Breadth artwork shows range of experimentation and experience as it relates to artistic concerns. Works demonstrate understanding of drawing techniques and styles. Students class and sketchbook assignments in the first semester will help generate ideas for CONCENTRATION and possible entry in QUALITY section. Students must identify their concentration theme early in the year so that the work will have the direction and focus required. Students are expected to dedicate time for research, attend trips to museum/galleries, maintain a strong work ethic and prepare a hands-on work portfolio in pencil, charcoal, pastels, watercolors, acrylic, oil pastels, markers…among others.

In breadth, students should have examples of:

CONCENTRATION

Concentration is about the exploration of a particular drawing or concern; a thoughtful investigation of a specific visual idea. It is a body of work seen together in one or more medium that need an underlying cohesive element throughout (series). This group of work should show a progression of skills and experimentation. To achieve unity in “concentration”, students create thumbnails sketches for a series of drawings and develop the series as new insights come.

QUALITY:

Group of work that best represent the student’s accomplishments; showing mastery of drawing skills, composition and visualization of concepts, mastery in composition, concept and execution. It is selected from all the work student has done inside/outside of the classroom. Can be from the concentration of breadth sections or not included in either one. They can be a group of related works, unrelated, or a combination of related/unrelated.
