This class is structured to help students who are interested in sitting for the AP Art exam through the college board. The class is open to those who are developing their portfolio independently through a homeschool or private school experience as well as those students who don't have an AP program at their high school. If you are a student in an AP program already and would like further input, we would love to help! This class will be structured to jumpstart your process the summer...
Students will learn how to develop a portfolio of 15 or more artworks that shows growth in the AP standards of: 1. Inquiry 2. Practice, Experimentation and Revision 3. Materials Processes and Ideas 4. Design This will be achieved through a variety of avenues that I have found to be successful through my many years of teaching AP Art. As well, I will help coach students on the writing component of the exam, through brainstorming exercises, rough drafts, editing of content, editing for clarity and editing for consistency.
I have been a public school art teacher for 25 years, most of which I have been active in teaching Advanced Placement 2-D, and drawing and painting. I am a lifelong artist both privately and professionally.
Since much of the work will be done independently outside of our time together, there is a substantial amount of time devoted to independent work. Successful students tend to work at least 5-10 hours per week on their artwork outside of regular class time. It is a rewarding class, but challenging! The number 1 comment I hear from my students it is really prepared them for the rigors of college and beyond. It taught them the work ethic necessary to be successful.
Students will need any materials they plan to use for the class. The instructor does not supply any materials or media.
I will assess each student by a written report and informal assessment.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
While student may reference sources independently, the only source official used in this class is the college board website.
