Re: High school art curriculum


Date: Mon Aug 06 2001 - 16:43:52 PDT

Hi Michelle
     I'm the only art teacher in a small private high school. Part of my
curriculum was inherited and part has been tweaked as the years go by.
All classes are one semester.
     Color & Design- the intro class is the prerequisite for everything else.
It gives me a chance to teach art history basics to everyone and gives them
the opportunity to see how I operate and the other types of classes
     Next level is Drawing & Painting, 3-D Design,Fabric Design or
Photography. Next level up (for which Draw/Paint is the prereq) is Watercolor
& Acrylic (all painting) or Figure Drawing (various media/ all figure) or
Advertising Art (which I'm starting to morph into a computer graphics class)
And finally Advanced Placement Studio Art.
     Good luck with the curricular changes.
