Advanced Placement Studio Art 

This course is for highly motivated visual art students working at or near freshman college level.  Student are required to produce  a portfolio of works demonstrating a high level of commitment, quality and revision. Students are also require to write about their approaches, processes and materials for each work.  The A.P. portfolio should be viewed

as the culminating experience of a student’s secondary visual arts training.

 

There are 3 types of A.P. portfolios:

Drawing (both digital and analogue methods)

2D (Digital and Graphic Design & Photography) 

3D (Ceramics, Jewelry & Sculpture)

 

Our goal is to master understanding of specific design concepts, such as the elements and principals of art, applying them to their work. Students will exhibit their understanding through two required sections of the portfolio:

 

  • Selected Works: The art in this section has developed a sense of excellence.

         The quality section includes 5 actual works that will be sent to the College Board (excludes 3D Portfolios). 

  • Sustained Investigation: Students make an in-depth artistic exploration of a chosen theme or idea and produce

         15 works of art for the portfolio.

 

Because the A.P. Studio Art portfolio is a performance-based exam (rather than a written exam), it is the expectation of this class that all students complete the A.P. exam. Students pay a fee for the exam (about $100.00) in October.

 

The portfolio is submitted to the College Board for judging and possible college credit. It is important that students possess

the ability to work independently on research of media, techniques, subject matter and historical precedents.

In addition, working on at least two pieces at a time will enable students to use their time more efficiently. 

Students who are able to take this initiative will find the course load more manageable.

 

Prerequisite for AP Studio Art: Students must take a minimum of 3 art classes, with a grade of C or higher in all 3 or or teacher recommendation.
