A select group of students, chosen by the faculty for their demonstrated excellence in studio art, motivation and potential, prepare a portfolio for submission to the College Board in the spring. There is the potential for receiving college credit. This course is rigorous and is for committed art students, many of whom are considering college programs for study in a range of disciplines that may extend beyond drawing and painting— such as filmmaking, fashion, industrial design, and architecture. Working independently under faculty guidance, students are expected to produce a majority of work outside of class and they have access to the art studios during weekends and after school. Students create 20 total works to meet the AP portfolio requirements.
