AP Studio Art (FA)


Duration: Year (1.0)

Grades 11-12

Homework: 7

Fee: see Fee Chart

Prerequisite: At least 3 semesters of Art (Photo, Ceramics, and Graphic Design included) and teacher signature based on passing portfolio review by the head of the Art Department. Portfolios may include loose drawings, paintings, photo, mixed media, design work, and sketchbooks.

Students with special talents and interests in art will receive group and individual instruction in many fine art areas that will help students prepare work (and digital portfolio) for the AP portfolio test in May. Students will be expected to spend at least 6-10 hours per week outside of class working on term projects and their concentration series. Students must be willing to subject their work to weekly group critiques, purchase their own supplies when necessary, be self-motivated in choosing projects to work on, and making deadlines. Students need to pass AP Art with 70% points possible to get graduating credit.
