Students enrolled in the AP Studio Art I & II course will focus on the development of a concentration (body of work) showing investigation, growth and discovery. Students will develop a series of work that are unified by an underlying idea that has visual coherence.
This course provides the opportunity for art students to participate in an accelerated art course in which they are completing a portfolio of work. The work should demonstrate the criteria set forth by the College Board. Students may elect to receive college credit in one of the following three portfolios: Drawing, Two-Dimensional Design or Three-Dimensional Design. Students are required to submit 12 works of art for the breadth section (completed in Portfolio-junior year), 12 works of art for the concentration section (completed in AP Studio Art -senior year) and 5 original works of art, which can be taken from either the breadth or concentration sections. Students must pay a fee to submit the portfolio. AP Studio Portfolios are submitted in May. Portfolios are evaluated and assigned a score by the AP College Board. The awarding of college credits for AP scores is at the discretion of the individual schools.
Students not wishing to submit for college credit may take the course to develop their skills and understandings of higher level art concepts.
