AP Studio Art
AP Studio Art is a course based on the production of a portfolio (Drawing; 2-D Design; or 3-D Design). The student will select the portfolio they are creating from the three categories listed and are required to submit a portfolio for grading for AP credit. The course is conducted in an independent study format, with assignments designed, supervised and guided by the instructor. Students must complete an application for entry into this class.

Students are responsible for keeping a sketchbook during the summer. In the sketchbook:
-Start making lists of things around you that may inspire you.
-Start getting a collection of references and resources for future projects from around you (magazines, internet, posters, ads… anything you see as interesting).
-It is the student’s responsibility to become familiar with www.collegeboard.org . Look at examples of past student work on this site.
-Start choosing a Concentration for your portfolio. Narrow it down to 3-5 ideas. We can settle on one when we get back to school.
-It is your option to do “projects” over the summer, but it may be nice to get a couple under your belt so you don’t have to scramble in the spring.
- Sketches of your hands and feet work well for additions in your portfolio.
