    Advanced Placement Art-3D Design

    Prerequisite: Ceramics 1, Ceramics 2, Ceramics 3 Honors

    AP Studio Art 3-D Design is a demanding and exciting course for the highly motivated art student. The students create eighteen to twenty three-dimensional artworks that are photographed and submitted digitally to the College Board for assessment. To be academically prepared for this challenging course, the students need to take three levels of three-dimensional art such as ceramics and have a portfolio review with Ms. Furst. The course is usually taken during the student’s 11th grade or 12th grade year. In keeping with the rigor expected in an accelerated setting, students are self-directed and display readiness for high levels of critical thinking, research, conceptual thinking, and creative risk-taking. Students work in a self-directed environment and are able to articulate and support their ideas by writing an artist's statement.
