AP Drawing Portfolio
My students need a wide variety of art materials in order to complete a professional quality advanced placement drawing portfolio for prospective universities.
"Every master knows that the material teaches the artist" ~ Ilya Ehrenberg. Without a variety of materials, the potential of my students is greatly limited. Help them find their mastery with an array of supplies to create an astounding AP portfolio!
My high school students come from a society lacking in artistic culture and positive reinforcement.
The innate desire for the arts pours out of their very souls. They are curious and motivated. All they need is a little guidance. To see them gain excitement and confidence as they explore and master different techniques is something that deserves respect, nurturing, and LOTS of encouragement. I am always amazed at how well the overall student body supports and encourages each other. The amount of leadership is astounding. All they need is a little positive reinforcement and they'll be shining stars!
My students are usually exposed to a severely limited supply of art materials, due to budget cutbacks both in the educational system and especially in the arts. Not only are there small amounts of materials to be shared between literally hundreds of students, there is also a lack of variety. As a result, the creativity and artistic potential of my students is squashed. I would like to provide my AP students with opportunities to explore paint, printmaking, paper art, charcoal, pen and ink, and even scratchboard. I have also included DVDs and books that will expose them to various techniques and provide inspiration for creativity and self-exploration. A number of projects will be able to be completed using these supplies with the overall goal of building their Advanced Placement portfolio for prospective universities.
The purpose of the AP Drawing Portfolio is to give students the opportunity to study and learn at the college level.
They will be able to earn college credit and/or advanced placement while still in high school. The portfolio should show a diverse amount of drawing techniques in any medium the student chooses. It encourages creative and critical decision making, the development of technical skills, and contribution to their community.
