  • Great Falls High offers four entry level classes - Art Appreciation, Art Workshop,  and Art Workshop 3-4* (Advanced).  Art Workshop is a prerequisite for Studio in Graphic Design & Photography, Painting & Printmaking, and/or Ceramics & Sculpture.  After two years of course work in the visual arts at the high school level, students are eligible for AP Studio Art & Design, a college level studio course, their junior or senior year.  All art courses are full year courses.  AP is a robust, college-level class.  Students are provided two class periods in alignment with the rigor of the course and time allotted at the college level for like courses.  All other art courses are full year courses, but only one class period.  Multiple art classes can be taken in the same year.  Art Workshop 3-4 requires either a teacher's recommendation or previous high school course work in the visual arts.  Students can earn a fine arts concentration diploma by taking four credits in art over the course of their high school career.
