The primary goal of the Portfolio Honors class is the completion of a large body of work which is representative of a personal artistic direction and demonstrates the creative strengths of the individual student. Skills taught in this course prepare the student for a foundation program at the college level. Students enrolled in this class can elect to submit their portfolios for the Advanced Placement exam in studio art.
The curriculum includes a study in aesthetics and art history, as well as studio work. This class enables the advanced art student to strengthen skills and broaden areas of interest that prepare her for art on the college level. The student will chronicle her artistic journey through a journal and will share her achievements through a presentation of her work to the Oldfields community.
Prerequisites: Studio I, Studio II, Portfolio, or equivalent experience as demonstrated by portfolio submission
