 College Preparatory Course (P). This course meets the University of California’s f (visual and performing arts) subject-area requirement.

This course meets the needs of advance, self-motivated students as they discover their own visual styles as artists. Students are expected to demonstrate competency in at least one art form and expertise in composition, and to exhibit their work individually as they develop it. They are also expected to participate in several exhibitions and critiques and to show respect for uniqueness in themselves and others. Students will strengthen their understanding of general styles and periods of major art forms and understand the contexts in which those works were produced. This course will cover the major artistic concerns of contemporary movements in art and how they affect the quality of contemporary life.
