ART PROGRAM

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

monalisafarmer.jpgThe Visual Art program at DMCI is designed to encourage students to develop their creativity, self-expression, and self-respect.  It provides opportunities for students to create and appreciate art, as well as develop their aesthetic perception, decision-making skills, and problem-solving skills.

COURSES

ART 20G | ARTR2G – 1 CREDIT

This course introduces students to the process to systematically explore ideas through the study and production of art in various media, as well as developing skills in drawing, painting, clay, printmaking and sculpture. Basics of good design, art appreciation and visual awareness are stressed.

ART 30G | ARTR3G – 1 CREDIT

This course builds upon learning activities begun in Art 20G. The introduction of more sophisticated ideas and techniques is accompanied with the expectation that students assume greater independence in the process of idea development and expression.

ART 40G | ARTR4G – 1 CREDIT

Throughout the course, students’ ideas, interests and feelings are the starting point for highly individualized projects. Projects include self-directed exploration of personal, social and artistic issues.

ART 40S | ARTR4S – 1 CREDIT

Like Art 40G, this course also focuses on highly individualized, self-directed projects which explore personal, social and artistic issues. Practical work is subjected to more rigorous standards of evaluation. Course requirements for 40S Art include a final exam at the end of the semester. Recommended for highly motivated students.

AP STUDIO ART: DRAWING PORTFOLIO | ART42S – 1 CREDIT

obamapencil.jpgThe Advanced Placement Program in Studio Art is intended for highly motivated students who wish to further advance their skills and experience in drawing issues and media. Students in the course will develop an individualized portfolio of work (about 30 finished pieces in total) in accordance with guidelines set out by the College Board. The portfolio forms the basis of evaluation by the art teacher for school credit and by a separate agency for possible college credit. The course will address such elements as light and shade, line quality and mark-making, rendering of form, composition, surface manipulation, figure-ground relationships, and the illusion of depth. Various media (printmaking, painting, mixed media…) and differing stylistic approaches (abstract, observational, inventive…) will be investigated throughout the course. Candidates for this course should expect to work independently and meet rigorous, ongoing, short-term deadlines. The AP Art program runs from September – May and class will meet daily during the student’s timetable.

Prerequisite: Standing in 40S Art with a minimum final mark of 80%, and instructor’s recommendation.​
