AP STUDIO ART DRAWING
This course is a rigorous college course designed for students who are serious in developing their talent and a college portfolio. All work completed during the year must be saved in order to evaluate each student's progression.
The PORTFOLIO is a representation of your mastery in the concept, composition and executions of their ideas. In studio classes, students explore and develop their personal interests and ideas, and develop an individual artistic voice/style for their end of the year PORTFOLIO.
The portfolio consists of 3 sections; Breadth, Concentration and Quality works.
BREADTH will be completed during the first semester.
In the Breadth section students will experience a variety of concepts and approaches to media, problem solving, and ideation. Students will explore mark making, and the use of color and value to develop their ideas and compositions. Students will also study Western and non-Western approaches to making art. They will experiment with traditional and non-traditional techniques and media. The Breadth process will be documented in journals through reflection sand self-evaluations.
CONCENTRATION: Students will transition into more open-ended and exploratory work for the Concentration section of the portfolio during the 2nd semester.
In the Concentration section, students develop a body of work,12 pieces or art based on a strong underlying visual idea in drawing and grows from a coherent plan of investigation. Each student will provide and present an outline of their plan to the teacher and class.
