The Trenton High School Art Department is separated into two dimensions of art. In order to take classes in a specific area of art, you must complete Introduction to Art 2-D or Introduction to Art 3-D. Once a student completes an Introduction to 2-D or 3-D art class, the student can then venture into other art classes based on interest. See the sequential art classes below in order to choose an art class wisely. Keep in mind that some students take both an Introduction to Art 2-D and Introduction to Art 3-D.
Intermediate/Mastery Placement (for students who have mastered basic skills):
When a student possesses sufficient experience and knowledge pertaining to an art discipline, alternatives must be available. Therefore, to qualify for such a placement in an advanced class, the student must consult with the art instructor and present a portfolio of six images or projects that demonstrate mastery of the required prerequisite course.
