AP Studio Art: Drawing/Design is a rigorous studio course designed for college-bound artists. Students work at an advanced skill level to produce an individual portfolio of 30, two-dimensional works. This rigorous class requires that students be self-motivated as they prepare to submit a portfolio for the College Board Advanced Placement Exam in the Spring. All work must follow class specifications to assure variety and meet the demands of the portfolio contents with multiple measures for quality production. Students must be able to demonstrate mastery in various media and artistic concepts while producing two categories of work to meet the Concentration and Breadth requirements of the AP portfolio. All assignments are based on the CA Visual Art Standards. Summer work is expected.
Fall field trip to local Senior Center for annual “Beauty in Age” collaborative project. Spring field trip to San Francisco Galleries, upon completion of AP Submission.
AP students are an integral part to the setup and execution of the “Evening of the Arts” show each May. Every AP Student displays their breadth and concentration works with their artist’s statement.
*Students may waive into this class with teacher recommendation.
