AP Studio Art I+II

Course Description: The Advanced Placement Studio course is designed for students who are seriously interested in the practical experience of art and wish to develop mastery in concept, composition, and execution of their ideas. AP Studio Art is not based on a written exam; instead, students submit portfolios for evaluation at the end of the school year. The course is intended to offer the student a college-level curriculum in the high school environment. In building the portfolio, students experience a variety of concepts, techniques, and approaches designed to help them demonstrate their abilities as well as their versatility with techniques, problem solving, and ideation. Students are required to investigate all three aspects of the portfolio, which include Quality, Breadth, and Concentration. Students will also develop a body of work for the Concentration section of the portfolio that investigates an idea of personal interest to them. Students who successfully complete the course can request credit from the College or University they will attend. The awarding of college credit for AP scores is at the discretion of the individual schools. College and Universities will review a student’s portfolio before awarding advance credit.
