AP Art? What's that? Well, I'm glad you asked. AP Studio Art 2D Design, which will be offered next year for the first time in Brunswick County is just what it sounds like. It's a college level course which presents students with the opportunity to receive AP credit in art.
Instead of a written text, AP Art requires students submit a portfolio of 24 pieces. That might sound like a lot (cause it its!) but students who select to take AP art will have a year to complete their portfolio. Some will have even a little longer as we have already started by getting a jump on the year ahead.
Students enrolled in this semester's Proficient/Advanced class are given the option of either working on Artistic Behavior assignments or developing alternative projects that align with the Breadth section of the AP portfolio. Breadth pieces should demonstrate a mastery of varied media, techniques and subject matter.
For these works, we are trying to steer clear of Internet images and instead relying on our on photography or better yet, drawing from observation. If an internet image is used, we are learning how to move beyond duplication to illustrate an original idea.
Students interested in AP Studio Art 2D Design should sign up for Advanced Art Fall 2017 and AP Studio Art 2D Design Spring 2018. Here we go!
