The instructional goals of the AP Studio Art program can be described as follows:
• Encourage creative and systematic investigation of formal and conceptual issues.
• Emphasize making art as an ongoing process that involves the student in
informed and critical decision making.
• Help students develop technical skills and familiarize them with the functions of
the visual elements.
• Encourage students to become independent thinkers who will contribute
inventively and critically to their culture through the making of art.Please note: There are no VA SOLs for the AP Portfolio class.
The standards goals are derived from the AP Studio Art College course guides and the individual teacher approved college board syllabus and Art 4 VA SOLs.
