Studio Art - ARTS.1245

About the Workshop

The objective of this course is intended to provide both new and experienced Advanced Placement® Studio Art teachers with an understanding of the requirements of the Drawing, 2-D Design, and 3-D Design portfolios. Participants will learn about the standard setting and grading rubric for each of the three portfolios. A detailed explanation of the AP® Studio Art reading will be provided. Sessions will include slide examples of AP® students work covering the concentration, breadth and quality sections of each of the three portfolios. Teachers will be given strategies for how to structure their AP class. Ideas will be shared for ways to help students create quality breadth pieces and select a concentration that will not only engage them, but will help visually develop their theme. Participants will also learn how to encourage students to keep up with the rigors and pace needed to complete high quality portfolios.

Time will be spent helping teachers, new to AP® Studio art, understand how to write their syllabus. Emphasis will be placed making sure teachers understand the importance of equity and access for all students. As leaders of 21st Century learning, participants will discuss how to guide students into the higher level thinking skills required to successfully complete a Studio Art portfolio.
