Advanced Portfolio 2-D Studio Design

Grade 12 with Dept. approval 5 credits

The Advanced Placement 2-D Design Studio course is designed specifically for highly motivated students who are seriously interested in the experience of creating college level 2-D Design and plans to pursue a career in the visual arts. Students will create a portfolio meeting the National expectations of the College Board Advanced Placement 2D Studio Art Program. The required portfolio will serve as the AP Exam for the course and must be submitted to College Board for scoring.

A superior work ethic both in and out of school will be required to prepare the 24 piece portfolio which may include but is not limited to graphic design, illustration, digital imaging, photography, collage, painting and printmaking. Throughout the portfolio, an emphasis will be made on three sections; Quality, Concentration and Breadth. Prerequisites: Graphic Design One and either Graphic Design Two or a 5 credit drawing course and Department approval.

Please feel free to talk with me about any concerns, thoughts or questions you may have about the class.

Remember, I will be take a workshop over the summer to teach this class, and I will be able to design the class myself, for you!
