• AP Studio Art Summer Assignment

    Please refer to the packet that was handed out in May, during our AP meeting.  It is very thorough in explanation of each section you need to complete.  Here is the summarized version:

    1. Photograph all of your artwork and load onto a USB (DUE: September 2nd/Friday)

      1. Locate your work! If you gifted it to friends or family members, ask if they can take a picture of it and send it to you. However it would be preferable for you to get the work back to photograph.

      2. When taking pictures, you may lay it down on the ground, under a bright light (or outside!)

      3. These works do not need to be adjusted in Photoshop or any other program.

      4. If the art piece has multiple areas of interest, zoom in with your camera and take a picture of that area.

      5. Do not rely on the folders of work I have previously created. The quality of the image may not be sufficient to submit electronically to the AP site.


    2. After choosing your category in section 2 (below), create a self portrait (Due: September 4th during class critique)

      1. This should not be from a photograph, but rather from observation. The work should reflect the type of portfolio you are going to work on in the fall.

      2. Drawing: Focus on mark making, drawing materials, depth and volume.

      3. 2D Design: Focus on a graphic style, emphasis on color and can be digital graphics, photography (digital or traditional), or mixed media. NOTE: you may not use magazine images in a collage unless they are your images.

      4. 3D Design: Sculptural material, 3D form, space, sculpture in the round, can be clay, mixed media, wood, found objects, etc.

    3. Visit the AP website and read the information about the AP portfolio
