2-D Advanced Placement Studio Art
Teacher: F. Schievelbein
Advanced Placement Studio Art is a vigorous program in which a student explores art and art methods to create an individual portfolio. At the end of the class, students will submit their portfolios for review by the College Board and each will receive a ranking.
Students will be expected to complete a large number of projects. The portfolio requires twelve completed projects, by creating more than twelve students will be able to choose their best works.
Students were given summer assignments to complete. These should all be finished by the second week of the fall semester to receive a grade. Grading will be on effort, skill, use of tools, and idea exploration.
All students must have a Sketchbook. The sketchbook can not be smaller than 8x10 inches. Sketchbooks are for student idea and process exploration. Sketchbooks will be graded once a month and will be at least 30% of the student’s grade.
AP Studio Art is a largely self guided and motivated class.
STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING THEIR WORK FINISHED IN A TIMELY MANNER TO MEET DEADLINES!!!
