The AP Summer Institute will be a valuable resource for teachers in connecting middle and high school students to a higher level of learning in the visual arts. It will give teachers the strategies and tools they need to engage their students in the development of higher visual studio art skills and computer knowledge.
Teachers will have an understanding of Advance Placement Studio Art Program to help students to prepare a portfolio. The teachers will learn a variety of approaches to visual art styles and techniques, abstraction, expression, and the investigation of the principles and elements of art standards. The institute will provide lesson ideas for three level for student learning; emerging, proficient, and advanced. These levels will not necessarily correspond to a particular grade level. Teachers will view a power point showing works in a portfolio demonstrating a Breadth and a Concentration of conceptual compositional and technical works of art, to address a very board interpretation of drawing, 2D Design and 3D issues. Photography, computer lessons and various printing techniques will be incorporated in the activity lessons.
We are currently planning AP Summer Institute 2014!
