Advanced/AP3D Studio Art
Advanced/AP 3D Studio Art is designed to help students continue their artistic journey as they develop a portfolio of work suitable for submission for AP credit, submission to art schools and universities, or to employers for internships/employment opportunities. This course requires a high level of individual motivation, work ethic, and focused engagement for students to be successful. Students focus on solving visual problems creatively, generating high-quality meaningful artwork, reflecting on personal & others’ artwork, and participating constructively in critiques. Development and presentation of a final portfolio of work are required to pass this course.*
The prerequisite for this course is a passing grade of "C" or better in Ceramics 1-4.
You will complete 3 projects per quarter, 6 for each semester. You may do more if you choose. 6 is the minimum.
You should not recreate any of the examples that are given.
Your subject, interpretation, composition, and media should all be original and authentic.
Work will be more intensive in both rigor and meaning-making, and therefore more difficult and time consuming to produce. Some of the problems will involve both working and reworking.
Higher level thinking/problem solving will factor heavily in this course. METACOGNITION—thinking about thinking will occur daily.
To allow for the higher level thinking, the art making pace, and the successful meeting of deadlines to occur, THERE MUST BE TIME SPENT WORKING ON ART OUTSIDE OF CLASS!
*Portfolio submission to the College Board for possible AP Credit is optional.
