12th Grade: Portfolio & Technical Arts - Course Description
Friday, August 22, 2014
At the beginning of the school year this elective will run as a conventional art media Open Studio class, which will allow students to choose their own media from the stock available in the Painting, Metals and Sculpture Studios.
We are hopeful that we will have technology in-place by the end of the first semester to allow every student to participate in the use of computer-based tools in this class, thus exploring aspects of modern Technical Arts. Students are welcome to use their own (appropriate) equipment in the meantime.
The aim of the Technical Arts part of the Elective will be to explore use of digital painting and drawing media. We will begin with the basics, exploring use of software and the graphics tablet (along with the necessary laptop).
From this humble beginning, we hope by the year’s end to reach our goal of being able to work equally well in terms of a convincingly representational technique with the graphics tablet, from both life and imagination, as we are able to do with traditional media.
Welcome to the Chicago Waldorf School classrooms!
