Daily Class Supplies

For daily class you need
  1. your mac login
  2. a sketchbook - It should have at least 50 pages and be book or spiral bound.  8.5" x 11" or 9" x 12" is a perfect size.
  3. number two pencil. 
  4. Suggested to also have a 2 gb or higher flash drive.
  5. Strongly encouraged to buy a portfolio (cloth or leatherette.  Heavy duty. 24 x 36 or so. 

Visual Journals: What Are They?

A visual journal is more than a sketchbook.  It is a place where you will track your creative process.  You will write, draw, collage, sew, glue, paint, think and plan in your visual journal.  It is the process of making your notes and ideas visual.  You will design your notes and ideas showing the process of how you arrive at your final work of art.  Being able to explain your though process through visual means is vital to literacy.  Leonardo da Vinci did this and so can you!  There are many great Visual Journal examples out in the world.  Check out some of these resources to see what Visual Journaling is and how you can make more of this process.

Assessment in This Class

As always the artwork you create and the way you present it will influence the grades you receive in this class.  We are in our second year as a district using Standards Based Grading.  With each unit you will see a highly detailed form that describes the assignment and shows what Reportable Standards and Priority Standards are being covered in the unit.   As we've done in the past you will participate in the critique process, which involves presenting your finished artwork and evaluating it in verbal and written form. 
  •  You will use the following  rubrics to self assess your work. Each is standards based and will be used to determine your grade in this class.  In some classes you will complete these digitally, while in others you will fill out a paper copy.  
  • Each class will digitally turn in their artist statements and a copy of their digital work to the Google folder for the class.  
  • All work will be turned in digitally for this class.  Please see the Google Folder Links Embedded Below.

AP Studio Art: Drawing Portfolio, Ms. King
Summer Assignments
Art is about the way things look and what they mean. It is about issues and ideas, but also about feelings and appearances. AP Studio Art is a creative laboratory in which we can explore with our eyes, our hearts, and our minds. Through art we can come to better understand the world, ourselves, and our place in the world. Art can even help shape the world.

​The main goal of AP Studio Art is to create a portfolio of 24 pieces of art, which is due the end of April. That’s 12 pieces BEFORE winter vacation! So, you will need to begin the process of creating over the summer by creating 3 pieces of art. These assignments are absolutely required. Everything is due on the second class period of the fall semester and count as your 1st 5 grades. You may drop off drawings in my room in the morning.

​Summer Assignments:

Specifically look at the various Concentration portfolios that students have done. Select one of these portfolios that you find particularly interesting and print the images off. Be prepared to explain your selection with the class upon your return to school.

2nd Go shopping!

Use as many pages as needed in your sketchbook/journal

5th Make some ART!

​Artwork Requirements:
•Utilize and fill up the space within all drawings but be sure to leave a ½” border on all four sides
•Drawings should be well developed, show good composition and reflect thoughtful planning.
•Each artwork needs to show a at least of 8-10 hours of work to receive a passing grade.
•All must be no smaller than 9”x12” and no larger than 18”x24” paper
*Do not mix different medias together in one piece. Next year I will show you how to mix different medias together successfully. You just need to learn which ones mix well first!
*You may NOT borrow my art supplies over the summer. See the list for supplies you’ll need to get. I will, however, give you some paper and loan you a drawing board.
* You may NOT use art you’ve made in another class- these must be NEW pieces!!!!
​¡¡¡¡DO NOT PUT THESE PIECES OFF!!!

5th Get some FEEDBACK!
By August 1st, share your work on Facebook or in emails to Varsity & Me!
You need to post photos of each of your pieces OR email at least 3 AP varsity students (& cc me: ckking@husd.k12.ca.us) by 8/1. I don’t expect the pieces to be finished, but rather in progress and AT LEAST 50% complete. The best time to ask for help, is before it’s finished. **I recommend that you utilize the AP facebook page, rather than email, to communicate with me and the AP alumni & varsity.
