AP Art & Design

Why Create Art?

 

Art takes time, patience, and practice not to mention an idea that hopefully is compelling. It all starts with an inquiry, and lots of questions. What if…, I am wondering.., what materials would be best to communicate…, how do I use color…, what is missing…, why does it not look like I thought it would? The new AP Art and Design curriculum has students start with an inquiry that takes turns as they respond to their own work. The students document their process and produce more questions to further their practice. Practice, Experimentation, and Revision, the process of art.
