Course Description

This objective of this institute for AP® Studio Art teachers is to provide new and experienced Advanced Placement studio art teachers with an understanding of the requirements of the 2D Design, 3D Design and Drawing portfolios. We will explore all three portfolios along with the Breadth and Concentration sections for each portfolio and studio experiences developed for either portfolio based on strengths of the participant. Emphasis will be placed on developing strategies for the concentration section in any of the portfolio offerings depending on the interest and experience of the participant. Covered will be the Reading process, mock Readings using the rubric for the 2016 Reading, sketchbook strategies, The College Board® materials, power points from the 2016 Reading, and studio activities. Developing thematic approaches to best illustrate the concentration body of work will be explored along with studio practices developed from the participant’s concentration theme/big idea/researched artist. A mini concentration, one final BREADTH piece, and possibly a power point based on the research will be expected.
Each participant will research an artist/s of interest, gather samples, produce a mini concentration and (time permitting) a PowerPoint on an artist, address the characteristics of the artist, design thumbnail ideas based on research in a sketchbook and produce one final full sized BREADTH piece based on research findings. All participants are asked to bring art materials they are comfortable working with that can easily be transported and dry quickly. Materials for the final piece need to be compatible with the expertise of the participant. Since we only have 4 days to work, please think about what materials could be substituted if you are a ceramicist, welder, oil painter, etc. Bringing a laptop and camera to the APSI would prove helpful in conducting the research aspect for the concentration.
