In the Drawing|Painting|Printmaking III course students expand their visual communications capacities, hone their knowledge and experience of 2-dimensional art materials/methods, and continue to practice creative habits that will serve them in all aspects of their lives. This course is designed to build on the strong theoretical framework and practical skills developed in previous art electives; applying those same concepts & skills to working with a variety of materials including: pen & ink, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, acrylic paint, mixed media, and printmaking methods. A major goal in this course is for students to develop their artistic voice – learning to rely on instincts, to explore ideas, and to experiment with ways to visually convey personal meaning. In so doing students develop creative confidence and build an awareness of personally relevant themes and materials, that can inspire their work. Sketchbooks are an essential tool in this endeavor and students are required to work in theirs regularly. In sketchbooks students practice creative habits – constantly noting inspirations; pondering and manipulating ideas; experimenting with materials; and documenting their world. Written reflections reinforce this thoughtful process.
