Think you're ready for Art 2?
If you have taken Art 1 equivalency classes at a Howard County middle school, studio classes outside of school, have attended HCPSS GT Saturday art classes, or are just REALLY dedicated to your personal art practice, you may be ready for Art 2! These are the current requirements that you must provide to your high school art teachers to be considered for passing through to the next level.
DIGITAL PORTFOLIO SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: Portfolios are due by Friday, January 31st. Take high quality (well-lit, in-focus, centered, cropped, rotated to the proper orientation) photos of your artworks and sketchbook page(s) and upload them in jpeg or jpg format. Email as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be notified within a week and if you show mastery of Art 1 problems, your name will be given to student services for recommendation to Art 2/Art 2GT.
Emerging & Proficient examples
Still-life drawings: notice the proficient underdrawing on top right shows maturity in composition, sighting, use of organizational line and overall accuracy. A finished drawing should also reflect proficiency in value (bottom right) by including 5 parts of a form: highlights, transitional shadows, core shadows, reflected light and cast shadows.
Self-Portraits: the proficient examples demonstrate greater accuracy in regards to the placement and proportion of facial features and increased knowledge of value to achieve 3-d form.
