Students examine historical and contemporary models as a means to recognize and understand unique perspectives on both art and life. Students learn observational, analytical, and interpretative skills through the use of group and individual critique. The studio component includes the exploration of materials and techniques, with an emphasis on developing problem-solving skills and creating original, thought-provoking artwork. Each assignment is directly linked to the senior IGSS English and social studies curriculum. Interdisciplinary projects are an integral part of a course dedicated to expanding students' knowledge of art in an increasingly global society.
