Welcome to Art 3


    Art 3 is designed to help prepare students for life beyond the classroom by developing problem solving skills through the creation of different types of art. We will study drawing, painting, printmaking, bookbinding, ceramics, and art history - at a more rigorous level than Art 2 and prepares students for their Art 4 (AP) portfolio. Throughout the year artists will create original works, learn more complex techniques, and hone their skills.
