Course SyllabusCOURSE TITLE: Art IV
PREREQUISITE: Art III
DESCRIPTION: The Loudoun County Public Schools’ High School Art Education Program infuses art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetic critiques. Art IV allows students the opportunity to independently generate content, and refine manipulative skills in expressive and descriptive experiences with varied media. The students will continue to write about and discuss increasingly sophisticated opinions and judgements about the work of their own, peers, and historic/professional examples. All students will add to a continuing portfolio for the purpose of generating ideas, recording visual incidence, analyzing historical/professional examples, and exploring imaginative symbolic ideas. Art IV students will be building a portfolio for possible college admission. Those students who are interested can work toward applying for advanced placement in art.
