High School Art
Welcome to a world of Creativity, a place where colors collide with thought. In the Art Department students learn through a multitude of artistic means. Art making happens in explosive moments of aesthetic punches. Drawing, Painting, Art History, and Independent Studies are all incorporated in to a very comprehensive art curriculum. Color theory is coupled with grid drawing enlargement techniques. Art Appreciation opens the doors for inquisitive interpersonal reflections, and behind the scenes understanding. Videos and documentaries are tools used to convey images with messages. Self Portraits are ways for students to search within themselves and peer down the alleyways of their mind. All Art Faculty bring with them their own unique art experiences, making sure Self-Expression is mandatory with unique special attention ties to criteria of track-able Art skill improvements. Students are given the freedom in the Advanced Studio Art Classes to explore their own individual tastes, styles and artistic expression, whether it is through impressionistic landscape painting or gore-ified shock art.
All classroom doors are artistically painted, with hallways lined by previous and current art student assignments. Art Appreciation in every discourse is taught as soon as you walk into the room. Art skills from all levels of expertise are honored and celebrated. Students are taught the fundamentals and encouraged to explore on their own in addition to class room exercises and assignments. Shading techniques and cross hatching in drawings give way to painterly effects with acrylic paints and mediums. Canvases are painted, repainted and contemplated over. The artistic mind is hard at work at the San Antonio School for Inquiry and Creativity's SA INC. (Student Art Incorporated). The end of the school year brings a grand reward to the budding artists; a final end of year Art Exhibition. All students enrolled in any of the art classes have a unique opportunity to gain recognition from their peers and school faculty. Artwork is exhibited on the campus and is open for viewing by the public during the opening ceremonies with each art student taking pride in themselves and the artwork they created.
