ART Building,Room 4.206.
This class has reached maximum enrollment and registration is now closed.

This AP Studio Art course will focus on preparing students for the AP Studio Art Exam through a rigorous and challenging curriculum. We will discuss ways to organize the class, ways to develop a challenging and successful curriculum, and ways to motivate the students to develop strong work ethics and master skills. We will share lesson plans and ways to accomplish the AP goals through Vertical Teaming and Pre-AP curriculum. We will discuss the Reading Process, the Digital Submission Process and the new changes made in AP Studio Art.

Participants should bring the following:

  • A written lesson plan with digital photo examples
  • Their favorite medium/media for creating a hands-on art activity (paints, pencils, brushes, etc)
  • A flash drive for uploading information and for the sharing of images and written materials
  • One or two combination locker locks to secure any items you would like to leave in the Art Building over night.

The participants need to bring art materials that will enable them to create a piece of art that would be submitted in ONE of the AP Studio Art portfolios……. such as the Drawing or 2D Design or 3D Design portfolio. The emphasis is different in each of the three portfolios so participants may create a 3D using any materials (trash, found objects, clay, etc). In the 2D Design… the emphasis is on DESIGN PRINCIPLES so participants may draw, paint, collage, use photography/digital, use mixed media, etc. The emphasis in the Drawing portfolio is mark-making and the Elements of Design so participants may draw, paint, collage, use printmaking, mixed media, computer tablets, etc.
