This elective, .5 credit, semester-long course utilizes the techniques and concepts learned in its prerequisite course, Painting I. Various types of paint with additional attention given to acrylic painting methods will be explored. Advanced application of previously learned painting skills for possible portfolio-building will also be offered, serving as an excellent resource for the AP Studio Art course, as well as providing practice and skills just for personal enjoyment. Individualized application of learned techniques will be welcomed. A lab fee will be charged.ASSIGNMENT LINKS (click on the blue words to open the links):
