This course will enable students who already have a good understanding of art and are skilled in the use of art media, an avenue for creative self-expression. Through a series of creative projects using knowledge of the aesthetic concepts and techniques gained in the two previous art courses, students are encouraged to discover their potential individual expression in depth. Students will undertake a number of projects that will challenge their creativity, problem-solving capabilities, and personal self-expression.
