Alabama Charcoal is Space One Eleven’s advanced studio art class, portfolio development, and career mentoring program for high school students who are serious about art. This rigorous program dsc_0014is designed to increase students’ college or career opportunities by building or enhancing visual art portfolios and drawing skills.

  • The elements of art and principles of design
  • Art studio vocabulary and procedures
  • The proper application of a variety of art techniques and mediums
  • Studio maintenance
  • How to critique and formally evaluate their own artwork and the artwork of their peers
