Fine Art Photography
This course is offered to students who are interested in learning about the basics of quality artwork using digital photography as a medium, as well as creating images that have visual impact. Students will learn the elements and principles of design with an emphasis on composition. Throughout the course, we will also cover the basics of digital photography including vocabulary and camera/computer function. Students will be introduced to the history of photography, descriptive analysis of student/professional work, student presentations, class critiques, and the work of influential photographers. Students will learn to develop and expand their aesthetic perception. They will use Photoshop to learn basic digital imaging while also learning to enhance some of their photographic work.
IB Visual Arts
Park High School’s IB Visual Arts class will provide students with opportunities to make personal, socio-cultural, and aesthetic experiences meaningful through independent investigation and production of art. This class aims to develop internationally minded people, embracing the common humanity of all, while investigating the visual arts from a local and global perspective. Students will be actively involved in acquiring the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to create personal, relevant, and well thought out artwork.
Year 2 Students will continue their art investigations. In addition, they will pursue their own artistic direction of subject matter, media, and content. They will be actively involved in independent research, as well as creating personal, relevant, and well thought out artwork. At the end of Year 2, students will complete an artist’s statement, participate in an oral review, and display a final exhibition of their artwork.
