San Diego

School of Creative and Performing Arts

Portrait The visual arts department offers a sequence of courses in two-dimensional concepts, drawing and painting, ceramics, mixed media, photography, computer graphics design, and video production. As students develop and progress, they may also choose elective courses in advanced studio classes, senior art studio, as well as AP art studio. Students will begin assembling their best works into a portfolio in the 11th grade year as a record of production, and to use in applications to art schools and universities. Cross-curricular projects, field trips to museums and galleries, as well as visiting artists, will support and enhance the quality of the program. As production is such an important aspect of the program, students will have numerous opportunities to exhibit several times each year.
