Upper Level Fine Arts Upper level students continue to explore tools and materials. Projects often require multiple weeks and are individual interpretations of a theme with specified media. Students work with both 2-D and 3-D designs, using block printing, carving, clay, plaster, and painting with acrylics, pastels and watercolors. Figure drawing, still life, portraits and landscape offer opportunities to increase drafting skills while exploring, light, shadow, negative space, and color. Upper level students discuss reproductions, but also visit galleries and museums to gain understanding of artistic process and product. We seek to have all students consciously make art and art appreciation a part of their daily lives.
