General Course Information and Notes
Students experiment with the media and techniques used to create a variety of two-dimensional (2-D) artworks through the development of skills in printmaking. Media and methods studied within this course may include, but are not limited to screenprinting, lithography, relief printing, and wood block printing as well as monoprint methods. Students practice and manipulate the structural elements of art to improve mark making and/or the organizational principles of design in a composition from observation, research, and/or imagination. Through the critique process, students evaluate and respond to their own work and that of their peers. During this course, students will also begin to build a portfolio of personal works and create an artist statement reflective of the body of work within the portfolio. This course incorporates hands-on activities and consumption of art materials.
English Language Development ELD Standards Special Notes Section:
Teachers are required to provide listening, speaking, reading and writing instruction that allows English language learners (ELL) to communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting. For the given level of English language proficiency and with visual, graphic, or interactive support, students will interact with grade level words, expressions, sentences and discourse to process or produce language necessary for academic success. The ELD standard should specify a relevant content area concept or topic of study chosen by curriculum developers and teachers which maximizes an ELL’s need for communication and social skills.
