AP Studio: Drawing Portfolio Submissions!
It's been a long, hard road but my single AP student and I have made it. Today we assembled his AP Studio Portfolio and tomorrow he will be submitting it to the AP board for official review. When I took this training course last summer in order to better prepare myself for teaching AP, I only partly prepared myself for the frustration and celebratory moments that this AP student went through during his development process. Before taking this AP class, he was a self taught artist, without any formal artistic classroom training. We struggled together with developing his artistic vocabulary, teaching him how to critique his own work, how to look at other artists for inspiration, and the process that goes with developing a concentration. Overall, I learned just as much, if not more than he did. I hope he is incredibly proud of his work, and we are all keeping his fingers crossed!
