The purpose of this Advanced Placement course is to give an art student the opportunity to develop quality, concentration and breadth in drawing concepts, skills, and techniques. The content should include, but not be limited to, the experiences in the development of perceptual, conceptual, and technical aspects of drawing, painting and/or printmaking. Preparation of the appropriate number of works, digital documentation and upload to The College Board site for portfolio evaluation, and presentation techniques are required in each of three portfolio sections to be evaluated by The College Board. Research analysis, sketchbook/journal, and aesthetic and historical criticism are required for this in-depth study in non-linear thinking. Participation in the Annual AP/Honors Art Exhibit, with artist statement, is an expectation of the course.
