Student Art Work

The Book Series

From the beginning of time, the book has been a way in which culture has preserved its ideas and values for scholars and those interested in the concepts therein.

The  Book series is a collection of ideas, thoughts, images, poems, sketchs, drawings and painted works that express the thoughts , feelings and emotions of Advanced Placement students here at the school.

The "books" are recycled and acted as a jumping point for the student to then add and change the content to a more personal and exploratory nature. The contents are often ideas that might  be developed in major pieces and act as a way for students to get in touch with themselves in a manner that can show development in an aesthetic sense.

Advanced Placement Studio Art Works

In the first semester, students use a variety of media and approaches to explore a breadth of  experiences in the Art Studio program. The students are often expanding techniques in new ways to show their competence of materials and their usage.

The Advanced  Placement Portfolio is a place where these and other works go to show the students diversity in the sense of studio practices they have mastered.

We hope you enjoy this portfolio of work and will furthur investigate and suport the visual arts not only in your own lives but in our community at large. On behalf of the students and faculty, we thank you for your support!
