Newly Expanded AP Studio Art Sample Portfolios Site!
The newly expanded AP Studio Art Sample Portfolios Site features students' works submitted as part of 2-D Design, 3-D Design, and Drawing portfolios in 2015. A range of Concentration (Sustained Investigation), Breadth (Range of Approaches), and Quality (Selected Works) sections from each portfolio type are presented, along with the students' concentration statements, scores for each section, and scoring rationales.
Assessment Overview: Studio Art 3-D Design
For the 3-D Design Portfolio, students submit digital images of the art works they created as well as an artist statement in which they describe ideas investigated and explain how the ideas evolved as they created their body of work.
All portfolios are assessed by at least two highly experienced studio art educators (AP Studio Art teachers or higher education faculty) who apply standard scoring criteria, with respect to the forms and content.
Complete descriptions of all the Studio Art portfolios can be found in the AP Studio Art Course Description (.pdf/1MB).
