In AP Art and Design, students will deepen the skills that artists and designers use to create a portfolio which will be scored by the College Board. Students will select one of the three disciplines to focus their portfolio work: 2D Art, 3D Art, or Drawing.
In this course, students will explore visual literacy frameworks, practice design thinking, and create an inquiry-based portfolio of 15 artworks in accordance with the College Board criterion for success. Students may also choose to use this portfolio for college applications.
Specific areas of study include:
Note: students are required to start their portfolio by completing three projects over the summer. See the AP instructor for the assignments.
Carondelet students should have TMS, DLS should have Fundamentals, and then all should have one year of a visual arts class before seeking instructor approval to take this course. Students with experience outside of Carondelet can meet with AP Instructor to determine eligibility.
