Assessment Overview: Studio Art Drawing
In early May, students submit actual works and digital images of works for their Drawing Portfolios. These works should demonstrate artistic growth and development.
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).
