Ap 2d Design Summer Assignments Herndon

 Edmond Memorial Art

Advanced Placement Studio:
​2D Design / Drawing

This course is modeled after a college art class.  It gives students more of a chance to develop their own self-styled portfolio, but is more challenging because students are expected to do independent research and work outside of class.  Students are given deadlines at the beginning of the year and are given the responsibility of turning projects in on time without being chased by their teacher.  The first half of the year, students have specific media and subject requirements, but have to develop their own artistic responses using those guidelines.  As students work through the first semester, they are simultaneously deciding which media, style, and subject matter they would like to use for their second semester.  In the second semester they have even greater freedom and responsibility to develop their personal portfolio.

​*Sketchbook Required & Course Fee of $80
*The AP exam requires an additional cost of $95

​*Note* Ok guys we're pushing the envelope here!  Not only is there the challenge of drawing a human, and the challenge of using a scratchboard, but there's also the challenge of wrapping shadows or patterns around a 3D form while simultaneously controlling value differences to push depth.  Those things I can help you with as you work, but I need your brain power and creativity to innovate.  Begin by looking at this mood board I've assembled and try to come up with something unique or better than what is already here.  Use materials you find around the house, in nature, or wherever to compose a fresh idea and photograph it.  You may photograph yourself, family, or friends, but I want you to own the rights of this photo.  I know it's a lot to think about, but sometimes its best to just jump straight in taking pictures and narrow your ideas down as you shoot.  Bring in several Monday for me to look through, so we can get the ball rolling.
Good luck,
Mr. Herndon
