The life of an artist is one of ongoing idea and skill development, full of practice, play, and continued refinement. The goal of this class is to expand critique skills, flesh out ideas, make additions and edits to one's portfolio, and gain valuable knowledge about the work of contemporary artists. Critiques and lectures will help high school students think about where ideas can come from for their artwork and how to successfully articulate them to others.

Used by contemporary artists as a means to explore identity, the photographic portrait has moved away from its commercial roots. People make portraits of their friends and family members not just as a historical record of the individual, but also to push the boundaries of what a photograph can say about its subject. During this class, students will explore the world of contemporary portrait photography. They will be encouraged to practice formulating ideas prior to photographing, while also learning how to constructively critique one another's work.
