In this level however, activities are focused on developing conceptual skills and philosophical maturity in perceiving and working art. While the attention is focused on the conceptual aspect of visual communication, integrating the technical skills developed previously should be of constant practice.

This is still an attempt to prepare learners in case they would take AP art courses, to instill awareness to the demands of education after high school, and shed illumination on to what profession they would opt to.

Current art expressions, philosophies and trends are the theme of activities to practice designing skills across all quarters. The second quarter engages them to work on 2-dimensional design illustrations with the integration of skills acquired from the preceding quarter. industrial design, furniture design, fashion, architectural and landscaping are explored. The 3rd and the 4th quarter, in harmony with the expectations that correspond to these quarters, challenge learners to create a wall bound and a ceiling sculptures respectively, which are both responsive to interior designing, 3-dimensional art and its functionality.
