AP Studio Arts: 2-D Design, 3-D Design, and Drawing




The resources listed below can be used to supplement the instruction of AP Studio Art courses, including 2-D Design, 3-D Design, and Drawing. They are geared to match College Board learning outcomes and test preparation, while also advancing critical thinking with real-world information about important policy issues. Studio Art teachers who are not preparing for the AP test may also find the resources useful.

“The AP Program offers three studio art courses and portfolios: Two-Dimensional Design, Three-Dimensional Design, and Drawing. The AP Studio Art portfolios are designed for students who are seriously interested in the practical experience of art. Students submit portfolios for evaluation at the end of the school year. The AP Studio Art Program consists of three portfolios — 2-D Design, 3-D Design and Drawing — corresponding to the most common college foundation courses. Students may choose to submit any or all of the Drawing, Two-Dimensional Design, or Three-Dimensional design portfolios. AP Studio Art students create a portfolio of work to demonstrate the artistic skills and ideas they have developed, refined, and applied over the course of the year to produce visual compositions.”
