AP Studio Art meets the needs of college-bound students in strengthening their artistic skills and understandings. In this course, students work independently and individually to create a meaningful body of work suitable for college admission. The student and teacher will mutually determine art media, processes and objectives to maximize student potential and growth. Experimental processes and risk-taking will be encouraged. Students will participate in selecting the themes, issues, big ideas, and social concerns in the art-making process. An emphasis on portfolio development, both of ongoing and best work, focuses the course. Students will document ongoing processes and artwork in addition to a digital collection representative of their best work. These portfolios are the main form of assessment by the students and instructor. AP Studio guidelines will apply.
