Advance Placement 2D Design is a class that Mrs. Beeson will be teaching next year.  The requirements include taking 2D art and digital design 1 & 2 with a B- or higher.

“A year-long advanced placement art class in which students focus on creating a portfolio showcasing their breadth of study and an area of focus.  Students may use photography, drawing, painting, digital art, and other 2D techniques in their final portfolio,” said Beeson.

This class may be able to act as a college credit depending on the university one chooses to attend and will help in different aspects to prepare for college and careers.

 “I am so excited to offer this course because I get to help advanced art students to develop their own distinct artistic voices and create a cohesive body of work that will help them in college and beyond,” said Beeson.

It is a new requirement for Indiana schools to offer Indiana Studies and Ethic Studies. Both classes are only one semester and are a part of the social studies department.
