Drawing and Painting 2

"Drawing is a learnable, teachable skill" - Dr. Betty Edwards

Drawing & Painting 2 builds upon the knowledge acquired from Drawing & Painting I.

Students work with media at an advanced level (often getting to choose their medium) and are given more creative freedom as they begin to develop a college level portfolio. At this level, students are expected to apply what they've learned in previous courses in order to solve real-world creative problems.

Projects include:
Still life studies, landscapes, portraits, figure, conceptual work, historical studies, and work based on careers in art.

Required Materials Include:
Drawing Pencils: Minimum Range of 4h - 4b
Sketchbook: 8.5 x 11
Erasers: Kneadable, Art Gum, Plastic, and Pink


I have high expectations for excellence in this course;therefore, the work that students create must consistently represent their best effort in the pursuit of improving their current level of ability.

All work will be assessed using rubrics designed with objective criteria and expectations.
