Drawing and Painting


Drawing and Painting classes are aimed to not only introduce and refine students' artistic skills, but also make students more observant of the art and design that surrounds us daily, to allow students opportunities to express themselves, and to discover how art affects the society we live in. In order to do this, our work is anchored in the Elements of Art and Principles of Design. In addition, the art studio serves as an ideal place to develop skills that will transfer to any work environment such as: working in teams, being resourceful, generating creative solutions, and time management. 

San Juan Hills High School currently offers an Introduction to Drawing & Painting class, as well as an AP Studio Art Drawing class. Both classes are designed to be a year long and fulfill the UC/CSU, A-G "Visual and Performing Arts" requirement.

It is recommended that students have some experience in an art class prior to the AP Studio Art class, where they will pursue the goal of making deep and more meaningful work in addition to growing in their artistic ability. AP Studio Art students have the opportunity to receive AP college credit by completing a portfolio of artwork that is submitted to College Board for review and scoring.
