Syllabus

University Preparatory School, Redding Ca

Advanced Placement Studio Art and Honors Art:

2D, 3d and Drawing

Course description

Advanced Placement Studio Art is a college-base class designed for students who are interested in perusing an artistic field after high school.  Students will develop their creative interests and concepts while composing an individual portfolio.  Unlike traditional art classes, Advanced Placement Drawing, 2D and 3D Studio Art is based solely on the portfolio which will be completed by the end of April.  The portfolio will be submitted to the AP College Board the first week of May.  Student will then receive their final score after the AP College Board reviews are submitted.

 

Goals of AP Studio Art:  Develop strong skills in breadth and consideration to use in field of study after high school and college/technical school.  Students will develop a professional presentable portfolio for selected audiences such as colleges, galleries and museums.  Students will explore and develop a series of works that are consistent with medium(s) but shows investigation, development and innovation with the immersed involvement of a compelling visual concept.  From breadth, concentration and quality, the main objective is mastery of medium, theme and sequence.

 

Structure to the portfolio:

There are three basic portions to each portfolio plus an artist statement:  Quality, the top five works in the portfolio; Concentration, the exploration through a particular medium, theme and/or subject; And Breadth, a variety of works created throughout high school that may or may not be attributed to the quality or concentration.  Artist’s Statement:  the artist’s statement explain goals, direction and discovery while developing an individual AP portfolio.

AP Art Portfolio Objective:

The main object of the AP portfolio is to develop a professional presentable portfolio for selected audiences such as colleges, galleries and museums. Students will work on creating a strong cohesive body of work in the concentration section of the portfolio. The concentration topic and the work presented are unmistakably and coherently integrated.

 

Create a solid concentration students will:

1.      Investigate a concentration topic provides convincing evidence of informed decision making and discovery.

2.      Create an original vision and innovative ideas and/or risk taking.

3.      Work should be evocative and theme is sustained throughout the concentration.

4.      Work has effective application of 2-D or 3D design principles.

5.      In general, the work is technically excellent; materials and media are used effectively to express ideas.

6.      The work conveys a sense of transformation and most works demonstrate a distinct measure of success.

7.      Published or/and photographic resources used in the work clearly provides a visual reference that is transformed in the service of a larger, personal vision in which the student’s “voice” is prominent.

8.      Accomplishment among the works may vary, but overall the work reaches a level of excellent quality.

Honor Code:

Plagiarism:

Ethics, Artistic Integrity and Plagiarism

Any work that makes use of (appropriates) photographs, published images and/or other artists’ work must show substantial and significant development beyond duplication. This is demonstrated through manipulation of the formal qualities, design and/or concept of the source. The student’s individual “voice” should be clearly evident. It is unethical, constitutes plagiarism, and often violates copyright law simply to copy an image (even in another medium) that was made by someone else and represent it as one’s own.

 

Digital images of student work that are submitted for the Breadth and Concentration sections of the portfolio may be edited. However, the goals of image editing should be to present the clearest, most accurate representation of the student’s artwork, and to ensure that images meet the requirements of the Digital Submission Web application. When submitting their portfolios, students must indicate their acceptance of the following statement: “I hereby affirm that all works in this portfolio were done by me and that these images accurately represent my actual work.”

Formative assessment/Constructive Criticism:

Class Critiques: At the end of each month students will set their work up gallery style within the class. They will discuss their project with the goal in mind of getting better. Students will discuss findings, challenges and failures (which is a good thing) to increase group knowledge. The main objective for this practice is to observe, describe, and explain ways to improvement on skills and visual communication.

One on One Meeting: Students will get the chance to work with Ms. Wilhelm after a class critique.  During this time student will formatively assess work during and have the opportunity to render work during class time or on his/her own time. Students will also use the rubric included to determine what mark they would get with each individual work submitted. Students will use the AP studio art rubric/guide to determine and render their work accordingly.
