AP Studio Art 3D Design makes it possible for highly motivated students to do college-level work. A portfolio-based course, AP Studio Art is designed for students who are seriously interested in the practical experience of art. Students who wish to be considered must be committed, mature, talented/creative, able to manage time well, and willing to challenge themselves to develop mastery in the use of elements and principles in 3D design. They should be seriously interested in the study of art and developing their portfolios of artwork which will be seriously evaluated in the spring of year two by college, university, and secondary school art instructors using rigorous College Board standards. Students will need to work outside the classroom, maintain an extensive sketchbook/journal and take part in group and individual critiques. Where possible museums and galleries will be used as extensions of the classroom.
