My AP students have the opportunity to submit an AP portfolio to the College Board. This art portfolio consists of three parts: Breadth, Quality and Concentration. If they pass they will recieve college credit for an art course (in high school) The cost of the test is 93.00. Although this is pricey, it is A LOT cheaper than a college course.
In the Breadth section students will have to submit 12 digital images of original artworks that THEY created.
In the Quality section students will have to submit 5 ACTUAL works (send them in, matted)
In the Concentration section students will have to submit 12 digital images of original artworks that address a theme. They will also have to write a concentration statement- which is an essay explaining their theme and the reasons they chose the medium they did and how they think they conveyed this theme throughout the images.
Here is a link to scoring information and portfolio examples (with pictures) look at the pictures of portfolios from previous years and see what kind of work it will entail: AP college board portfolio info
