This is a demanding full-year course for experienced, highly motivated, and dedicated photography students looking to develop a 2-D photographic portfolio and earn college credit. Students in this class will submit an Advanced Placement 2-D Art and Design Portfolio consisting of a number of quality photographic works. The AP exam consists of two sections. The Selected Works section requires students to demonstrate skillful synthesis of materials, processes, and ideas. The Sustained Investigation section requires students to conduct a sustained investigation based on questions, through practice, experimentation, and revision. Both sections of the portfolios require students to articulate information about their work.
