Art Portfolio (Advanced Ceramics)

AP 3D Portfolio is due digitally via the College Board website by TDB- early May.

Art Portfolio *advanced ceramics* Course Description:

In this course you will further investigate ceramics process and techniques. As an Art Portfolio student, you will be creating a comprehensive portfolio (1 full year or 1 semester depending) exploring both breadth & depth in clay. Students will create a body of work based around a concept or theme and explore other methods of building to create a well-rounded portfolio of work. Reflection will become an integral part of your process and formal/informal critiques. You will be evaluated based on informal assessments, time on task, formal rubrics, sketchbook assignments, and written reflections.
