Bellaire High School
Pre-AP & Pre-IB students who do not already have instructor approval from Bellaire teachers should email pictures of 6-8 of your best work (3 from direct observation) to:
In addition to showcasing your best work, artwork should be chosen to demonstrate mastery of a variety of foundation art concepts such as shading, perspective, drawing what you see, portraits and so forth. Well-rounded portfolios of recent work help us to assess your current level of experience, ability, and understanding. And, allows us to accurately council you as to what classes are best for you to enter.
No student wishing to take class IB or AP level classes should do so without sending their work for review and doing summer assignments. Any students new to Bellaire should send work as soon as they are able.
Summer assignments are required and a major part of your grade. As we are returning to school online for the first six weeks these assignments will need to be turned in digitally. We will address how to take pictures, edit them, and how and where to turn in when we see you in class. Assignments will be due within the first few weeks of school. Work should be complete as possible when you return so when we start you can focus on taking great pictures and putting things together in the format your teacher desires for upload!
Enjoy the rest of your summer! We are looking forward to seeing you!
