Advanced Placement Studio Art: 2-D Design, 3-D Design, DrawingCourse Curriculum
The intention of Advanced Placement Studio Art is to assist each student in becoming
familiar with art making at the collegiate stage, independent art practice, individual
motivation, as well as develop specific methods for progressing through the art course.
Students will be guided through a process of developing work technically, aesthetically,
and conceptually. All students are expected to invest all available time into completing
a well composed final portfolio. A considerable amount of time outside of the classroom is necessary to create a successful collection of completed assignments. Students will be provided with quarterly assignment sheets which detail specific projects and/or investigations that will be due at the end of the quarter grading period.
Section I: Quality
Students are asked to submit five actual works. They may be separate and distinct or related to one or more of your other submitted pieces. No larger than 18’x24” (mat included). These should be the best of your best works.
Section II: Concentration
12 digital copies must be submitted. A concentration is a body of related works that focuses on investigating growth and discovery. The evaluators are interested in visual evidence of student’s thinking and development over time. This section must present a proposal of an underlying theme of investigation that has progressed with each new project. It is the student’s responsibility to create a rational plan of study for the subject matter that is selected. Each student should select a topic that is of deep interest and engaging to them. At the start of the school year, with teacher guidance, students will participate in various creative activities and references to historical art practices that may aid in the students determination of concentration. Students will be asked to bring past portfolios or any completed or ongoing personal work for review with the teacher. This activity will also serve as an aid for establishing a concentration.
Section III: Breadth
The students work should display variety in art forms, but more importantly in technique. Technical range should be shown here as evidence of experimentation in drawing and/or building. Examples are landscapes, human figure, or still-life; gesture drawing and contour drawing may be a change of technique for you. Digital copies must be submitted.
The table below summarizes the section requirements for each of the three portfolios.
