East Rockaway High School

Art Department

The East Rockaway Jr./Sr. High School Art Department offers a variety of courses to meet a variety of needs. Students satisfying a basic graduation/ Regents requirement may opt to take any selected class(es) on a non-major basis. Art majors are encouraged, in their pursuit of an art sequence, to take a broad variety of classes in order to establish the foundation needed for college art programs. The final portfolio is a result of this sequence.

In general, all art classes stress the importance of in-class performance. Grades are based not only on the actual artwork completed, but also on preparedness, attitude, demonstration of knowledge and skills acquired and adherence to deadlines. A good attendance and punctuality record is essential.
