Photography 4


This class is for the continuing advanced photography student and builds on the skills learned in Photography 3. Students will create a comprehensive portfolio based on a visual theme, concept, or genre of artwork in this contract-based class. Students will propose a personal vision that they want to communicate through photographic means to an audience. Regularly scheduled evaluations will provide friendly, constructive feedback to help you hone your visual communication skills. Students will be evaluated in the following categories: Design, Craftsmanship, Originality, Participation/Productivity, and Improvement using the Visual Arts Evaluation Rubric. In addition to producing a portfolio of artwork, Photography 4 students will complete a research project based on a major artist or art movement. Wacom Bamboo interactive drawing tablets are provided for student use in class. Representatives from art colleges will give presentations and conduct portfolio reviews for students interested in preparing for careers in the arts. Students will be offered the opportunity to prepare an AP Studio Art portfolio.
