Advanced Placement Portfolio

The Advanced Placement Portfolio program enables highly motivated students to do college level work in studio art while still in high school.

Advanced Placement Portfolio is not based on a written examination. However, for one section of the portfolio, extensive research and documentation are required. Advanced Placement work involves significantly more time and commitment than most high school courses; the program is, therefore, intended for students seriously committed to studying art. Upon completion of this course, the student can submit a portfolio for review and evaluation.

The College Board currently accepts three different AP portfolios – Drawing (i.e., any traditional art media excluding computer art or photography), 2-Dimensional design (i.e., photography, computer art), and 3-Dimensional design (i.e., ceramics, sculpture).
