In Photography, students of all levels are engaged as artists and emerging professionals in a studio/lab environment. Students are challenged to develop a culturally relevant artistic practice and to explore the possibilities for visual communication via the photographic medium.
Through a sequential historically and multiculturally informed curriculum students are challenged to develop visual and conceptual strategies for the creation of artworks reflective of their experience of the world and culture in which they live. Students are challenged through immersive, hands on lessons to develop mastery with current and historically significant analogue and digital cameras, equipment and processes.
Art principles, practice, and safety are taught with an eye toward future careers within the arts and graphic fields. Students expand upon these learning experiences with reading assignments, field trips, gallery reviews, guest artist visits, research papers, in-depth critiques and mentorship roles they develop within the classroom community and within the larger ArtQuest Visual and Performing Arts Programs and SRHS Community.
