Course Overview

Studio Arts 10 provides students with a very complete art program. Students will keep an art journal; create two dimensional compositions in pencil, pencil crayon, oil pastel and acrylic paint. Students will create three dimensional compositions using plaster and assemblage methodologies. There is also an art history essay for students to complete.
