Instruction in art provides students with a formal educational opportunity to develop their creative imaginations, to use their hands, and to gain satisfaction through the expression of their own ideas. The practice of art provides cognitive learning experiences and encourages aesthetic development. By affording opportunities to experience pride in accomplishment, the study of art increases concepts of self-worth. The benefits of art study may ultimately be realized in vocational choices and/or in meaningful and vocational involvements with the arts. A background in the fine arts is valuable for students interested in fashion, advertising, and photography. Studio in Art is a requirement for students meeting their fine arts requirement through art.
Studio in Art
Studio in Art is a one credit foundations course that gives the student an opportunity to explore many methods of expression. The areas of content include elements of design, experience in the execution of drawing, painting, 3D media and art history. All students will be required to fulfill project requirements for course credit. This course is a pre-requisite for all other art courses. Students who have achieved Regents required credits through music may take elective art without the Studio In Art prerequisite, with art teacher’s permission.
