Portfolio Development & Advanced Drawing – Virtual Art Show
By: WebmasterDate: Apr 29, 2020 Tags: Arts, Plymouth Christian Life
We are pleased to present the second in a series of Virtual Art Exhibits, showcasing the secondary artists at PCA. This week, we are highlighting the work of our Portfolio Development and Advanced Drawing Classes.
Portfolio Development is open to students in the 11th and 12th-grade years. During this class, students develop a complete portfolio for entrance into college. Throughout the course, they continue to develop skill levels, knowledge of art history, and technique in various media, but the essence of the course is to prepare students who intend to pursue art in college.
Advanced Drawing students in grades 9th-12th learn to solve complex artistic problems. They develop their own style and learn to choose the proper subject matter and medium to express their ideas. Throughout the class, they gain an understanding of how to critique their own work along with other students’ work. The essence of this course is for the student to develop their own artistic voice while increasing their knowledge of technique. For this art show, the Advanced Drawing students worked to hone their visual skills and their mastery of the following mediums: pencil, charcoal, conte crayon, and colored pencils. The students participated in “life drawing” sessions, creating a composite of their life drawing sketches, daily sketches of various objects, still life work, and a study of the great illustrator, M.C. Escher.
Enjoy their Virtual Art Exhibit!
