students to develop their creativity, self-expression, and self-respect. It provides opportunities for students to

evaluation. Course requirements for 40S Art include a final exam at the end of
the semester. Recommended for highly motivated students.
AP STUDIO ART: DRAWING PORTFOLIO | ART42S – 1 CREDIT
The Advanced Placement Program in Studio Art is intended for
highly motivated students who wish to further advance their skills and
experience in drawing issues and media. Students in the course will develop an
individualized portfolio of work (about 30 finished pieces in total) in
accordance with guidelines set out by the College Board. The portfolio forms
the basis of evaluation by the art teacher for school credit and by a separate
agency for possible college credit. The course will address such elements as
light and shade, line quality and mark-making, rendering of form, composition,
surface manipulation, figure-ground relationships, and the illusion of depth.
Various media (printmaking, painting, mixed media…) and differing stylistic
approaches (abstract, observational, inventive…) will be investigated
throughout the course. Candidates for this course should expect to work
independently and meet rigorous, ongoing, short-term deadlines. The AP Art
program runs from September – May and class will meet daily during the student’s
