This Advanced Placement program in studio art is intended for highly motivated students who are seriously interested in the study of 2D art or sculpture. Students create and submit a portfolio which meets the requirements of the College Board.
The AP Program offers three portfolios:
AP 2-D Art and Design, AP 3-D Art and Design, and AP Drawing
Students create a portfolio of work to demonstrate inquiry through art and design and development of materials, processes, and ideas over the course of a year. Portfolios include works of art and design, process documentation, and written information about the work presented. In May, students submit portfolios for evaluation based on specific criteria, which include skillful synthesis of materials, processes, and ideas and sustained investigation through practice, experimentation, and revision, guided by questions.
Drawing Explore drawing issues including line quality, light and shade, rendering of form, composition, surface manipulation, the illusion of depth and mark-making through a variety of means, such as painting, printmaking or mixed media.
2-D Design Learn to use 2-D design principles to organize an image on a picture plane in order to communicate content. Demonstrate mastery through any two-dimensional medium or process, such as graphic design, digital imaging, photography, collage, fabric design, weaving, fashion design, fashion illustration, painting and printmaking. Develop technical skills and familiarize yourself with the functions of visual elements as you create an individual portfolio of work for evaluation at the end of the course.
3-D Design Explore sculptural issues and understand 3-D design principles as they relate to the integration of depth and space, volume and surface. Demonstrate mastery through any three-dimensional approach, such as figurative or nonfigurative sculpture, architectural models, metal work, ceramics, glass work, installation, assemblage and 3-D fabric/fiber arts.
