    Students are eligible for this course based on recommendation/audition based on evaluation by both previous 6th-grade art teachers and the visual arts team. This course is the advanced track for the 7th-grade state curriculum and will challenge students during a semester of rigorous projects and exploration of different cultures and approaches to creating works of fine art. This course, like all other art courses, is based on the Elements and Principles of Art as well as SC standards. Students will be graded based on four major categories, directly related to the SC State Standards: Technical Mastery, Design Resolution, Creative Expression, and Presentation. As with all art classes, students will have the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in a school-wide art show.
