Available here as a download: AP Studio Art Summer Assignment
The following pages have a vast selection of summer assignments for you to choose from. As an AP studio artist, you are expected to submit quality artwork that can be comparable to artwork produced at the college level. Your summer assignment involves a time commitment of about 2-5 hours a week. They are vital to the development of your AP Portfolio. It will add to the required AP sections: Quality, Concentration, & Breadth. In some cases, it will be a realization process for you to understand yourself better as an artist. You are expected to create 4 high quality, well- thought out pieces of completed artwork throughout the summer and keep a sketchbook to document the progress and concepts behind your artwork.
CHOOSE any four (4) of the ASSIGNMENTS in packet.
Two (2) are to be completed by July 15th
