Post Artpac for high school art credit? Reply with quote
Hi there,

Just wondering if my daughter did the Artpac#8 book, could that count towards a high school visual art credit?

http://www.milestonebooks.com/item/38-60188/?list=Rod_and_Staff_Art

It is listed as an 8th grade book.

This daughter is very artistic and I would like her to keep up with drawing skills.

I'm just having a difficult time finding a good "drawing high school art book."

Have looked at the two Artistic Pursuits high school books, and will purchase them if need be.

Just trying to use up what resources I have for the moment - I already have the Artpac8 sitting on my shelf Smile

We are aiming for the Magna diploma.

Thanks for any help.

Have you heard of this?

Kolbe advisor, would any of these qualify for high school art?

As far as the issue of it being listed as an 8th grade text, that's really only a problem for us in academic subjects, where a certain level of academic rigor is necessary to qualify for high school credit. For a fine arts class that's about learning how to do the fine arts, we'd be more focused on the # of hours spent in class, as it would fall under the category of non-academic course. The base expectation is roughly 4 hours per week, 8-9 weeks per quarter.

Thank you for the replies. That makes sense.

I'm sure she will easily hit those # of hours.

I have heard of How Great Thou Art, but was hoping to use the Artpac that was sitting on my shelf before having to purchase more texts Smile

Will keep it in mind for the year after.

Thanks again!
