Pre-Advanced Placement Studio Art

Advanced Placement Studio Art
The AP Studio Art portfolios are designed for students who are seriously
interested in the practical experience of art. AP Studio Art is not
based on a written examination; instead, students submit portfolios for
evaluation at the end of the school year. The AP Program offers three portfolios: Drawing, 2-D Design, and 3-D
Design. The portfolios share a basic, three-section structure, which
requires the student to show a fundamental competence and range of
understanding in visual concerns (and methods). Each of the portfolios
asks the student to demonstrate a depth of investigation and process of
discovery through the Concentration section (Section II). In the Breadth
section (Section III), the student is asked to demonstrate a serious
grounding in visual principles and material techniques. The Quality section (Section I) permits the student to select the works that best exhibit a synthesis of form, technique, and content.
Photography I course is designed for the highly motivated who is
interested in the study of photography as an art form. Students will
learn the proper use of a 35mm film camera as well as digital SLR
cameras. Topics also include a survey of photographic history,
composition and technical skills, traditional darkroom and computer lab
production, cultural literacy, presentation of artwork, proper critique
methods, and career opportunities.
