Enloe Magnet HS Klenow

About AP Studio Art; Students take AP Art to create a body of work that is of the highest quality, is self-driven, and at a college level of difficulty.  Second semester students in 2D and 3D create 12 pieces of  art connected into a cohesive unifying idea called a sustained investigation. Students are shown work from the ap central site and college board portfolio examples as a model. A variety of media, materials, and design approaches are explored throughout the year.

Students will create a website and post digital images of their work on a regular basis, meeting

deadlines is critical in an AP studio course.
