A look what the AP class wrote on the whiteboard sums it up. We completed all 12 Breadth and all 12 Concentration pieces. We matted all the quality works and packed the box, ready to ship. AP Art 2019 is done!
Here is a look at the student's Sustained Investigation; the concept of producing a series of sequential visual forms to explore in greater depth a particular visual concern.
"My concentration is a series of original characters that are interacting and showing emotion to the implied environment around them while exploring contrast, color theory, and proportion. "
"My concentration is a series of stylized self portraits depicting different aspects of my personality through either accurate proportions or exaggerated features while exploring the relationship between the background and the foreground of each piece."
"My artwork is a series of abstracts using a technique called acrylic pouring. This technique interested me because I had to experiment with different densities of paint mixed with my medium and water to get my desired consistency that would flow smoothly when doing different pouring techniques."
"My concentration is a series of humanoid figures depicting various emotions and various positions, as I demonstrate this by using watercolors, pencil and markers in a cartoon style."
"My concentration is a series of original works of art symbols inspired/depicting things found in history with tribal arts and patterns found in different cultures while emphasizing the darkness and lights in each cultures, movement and balance."
"My concentration is a series of original animal shapeshifters that are placed in different positions/perspectives and backgrounds some of which are interacting with their human counterparts. All pieces were done in mixed media most of which was water color paint and colored pencils."
"My concentration is a series of kids in Guatemala depicting the experiences and relationships formed throughout my trip while exploring a creative way to incorporate Guatemala through the background ,with the contrast, value."
"My concentration is a series of Crow/Ravens. With each Image I started with a drawing/painting using traditional materials. I then imported those art works into Photoshop where I digitally edited each one. My projects depict the beauty of crows through their actions, such as flying patterns."
"My concentration captures lights reflecting our culture. My concentration depicts the complexity of how much life lights brings to our culture. My concentration stemmed off the idea go how light reacts to the photograph."
