Brush Strokes to Success

In Mrs. Judy Russell’s seventh hour class, students of all kinds gather for a joint class of Drawing and AP Studio Art, where drawing students work on sketching the human figure, while AP Studio students work to create their own projects to submit in a portfolio. On Thursday, Dec 5, the students of the latter class were brainstorming, drawing with pencils, gluing, and painting as they each made their own independent projects. Senior, Teddy Rosen spoke happily about how important AP Studio Art is to a high school student like him.

“It gives me a chance to work on pieces to put in my portfolio,” Rosen said, “It lets me be creative in ways I didn’t think were possible.”

Later this school year, AP Studio students will submit a portfolio of finished pieces to a college in order to receive feedback that will help with job applications in the future.
