AP Studio Art is a one-credit course intended for the serious 12th grade art student who is highly self-motivated and committed to building a superior portfolio. The course is time-demanding and based on quality, concentration of a particular mode of work, and breadth of experience. Students will submit their portfolios for evaluation to The College Board enabling them to qualify for college credit in studio art. Students must choose to submit either a 2D, 3D, or Drawing Portfolio. In order to qualify for entrance into the AP, students must maintain a high average in their junior year, and undergo a Department Portfolio review. It is strongly recommended that entrants pursue guided work during the summer of their junior year, in order to prepare for the AP. Completion of a summer assignment is required for all students.
