AP Studio Art 2D Design
The AP Studio Art 2- D Design course is designed as a college level 2-D Design class providing teacher direction and guidance toward student growth in the visual arts. Technical skill, creative concept, and student expression play an important role in the making of art; however, it is the motivation and personal commitment of the student that is also required for this college level art class. AP Studio Art is a college level course taught in high school. While enrolled in this course, students will have an opportunity to complete a portfolio of their best work for submission to and review by the College Board. Students will submit this portfolio the first of May at a date set by the College Board.
The 2-D Design Portfolio intended to address two-dimensional (2-D) design issues. Design involves purposeful decision making about how to use the elements and principles of art in an integrated way. The Principles of design (unity/variety, balance, emphasis, contrast, rhythm, repetition, proportion/scale, figure/ground relationships), articulated through the visual elements (line shape, color, value, texture, space and form), help guide artists in making decisions about how to organize the elements on a picture plane in order to communicate content.
