ARA613: AP Drawing+ (2022)

The AP Drawing class is an intensive one-year course of college-level study that addresses student understanding and application of broad concepts of drawing media. The Fundamentals of Art course is suggested preparation for this course. Completion of at least one studio course is necessary prior to enrollment in this AP studio course.Students demonstrate aspects of drawing that include the elements and principals of design while exploring formal and conceptual issues of works of art through creative and systematic investigations. Students who enroll in the AP Drawing course will be expected to produce a minimum of forty pieces of finished artwork in a variety of two-dimensional drawing media, techniques, and subject matter. A portion of this work should be directed toward a student selected theme so that the student may develop an understanding of how masterworks and other artwork contribute to individual and personal ideas. Students are expected to submit a portfolio of their works of art for College Board Advanced Placement Review at the end of the course.
