Course Description

The AP Studio Art Portfolio course is designed for students who are seriously interested in the practical experience of art and wish to develop mastery in the concept, composition, and execution of their ideas.  AP Studio Art is not based on a written exam; instead, students submit portfolios at the end of the year.  In building the portfolio, students experience a variety of concepts, techniques and approaches designed to help them demonstrate their abilities as well as their versatility with techniques, problem solving and ideation.  Students develop a body of work for the Breadth section of the portfolio that demonstrates versatility in their art making.  The Concentration section of the portfolio investigates an idea of personal interest to them.  These 24 pieces are submitted digitally.  The five top pieces are selected for actual presentation in the Quality section of the portfolio.
