OHHS Studio Art AP and the AAC Artist & Writer in Residence Program

Ms. Schorsch’s Studio Art AP 2D Design and Drawing students are participating in the Art Academy of Cincinnati’s Artist & Writer in Residence program through their Community Education division. The program focuses on the 21st Century Thinking skill of ‘Creativity’ and how to think like an artist. Students have been working with our Artist in Residence, Amanda Hudson, exploring the creative process necessary to developing the Sustained Investigation section of their Studio Art AP portfolios. The Sustained Investigation of the portfolio focuses on the exploration of a theme which they selected to research and explore through the creation of a body of artwork. Students embarked on the Artist in Residence experience by discussing creativity and brainstorming through concept mapping, participated in individual and group critiques of their works, and started to hone their written skills in regards to articulating their creative voice.
