Portfolio Submission Process

New for 2022-23 

Starting this year, all portfolios (2-D, 3-D, and Drawing) will be submitted digitally only. AP 2-D and AP Drawing students will no longer mail their physical work to the AP Program.

Submission Requirements

All three AP Art and Design Portfolio Exams contain two sections: Sustained Investigation (60% of total score) and Selected Works (40% of total score).

For the Sustained Investigation section, students will digitally submit 15 images, some of which may show details and process documentation. Images can include fully resolved works and forms as well as sketches, models, plans, and diagrams.

For the Selected Works section, students submit digital images of five works that best demonstrate skillful synthesis of materials, processes, and ideas. 

Digital Submission

Digital submission for AP Art and Design becomes available in mid-November each year. 
New for 2022-23: Students' portfolios will be submitted via the AP Digital Portfolio. The experience for students should be very familiar. The role of AP Art and Design teachers in the submission process has been simplified. We'll email teachers in November with details about the digital submission process.
