AP 2-D Art and Design

AP 2-D Art and Design course is designed for highly motivated students who are committed to the creation and study of art. Design involves purposeful decision-making about how to use the elements and principles of art in an integrative way. The 2-D portfolio is intended to address a very broad interpretation of design issues. Students are asked to demonstrate proficiency in 2-D design using a variety of forms. These could include but are not limited to, graphic design, typography, digital imaging, photography, collage, fabric design, weaving, illustration, painting, printmaking, etc. 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.
