The Advanced Placement 3-D Studio Art course is designed for highly motivated students who are committed to the creation and study of art. The 3-D Portfolio is intended to address a broad interpretation of sculptural issues in depth and space. These may include mass, volume, form, plane, light, and texture. Such elements and concepts may be articulated through additive, subtractive, and /or fabrication processes. Examples of approaches include traditional sculpture, architectural models, ceramics, and three-dimensional fiber arts or metal work, among others. Students are expected to submit a portfolio for the Advanced Placement exam.
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 VA class before seeking instructor approval to take this course.
