West Orange High School Spring Exhibit at the West Orange Art Center Showcases Advanced Placement Student Artists
Through an exciting partnership with the Visual and Performing Arts Program at West Orange High School (WOHS), the West Orange Arts Center’s latest show features rising stars of our arts community, from Saturday, February 24 through Saturday, March 31, 2018. On display is the work of Advanced Placement Studio Art Juniors & Seniors attending West Orange High School.
The WOHS Arts Program offers a variety of visual and aesthetic art courses. Students are required to complete a one-semester foundation course in studio art before proceeding to advanced studies like advanced drawing, design, painting, graphics and sculpture. After completing demanding advanced courses, juniors and seniors may enroll in Advanced Placement Studio Art, producing portfolios for college admission and earning up to six advanced placement college credits.
