Portfolio Submission Process
New for 2022-23
Starting this year, all portfolios (2-D, 3-D, and Drawing) are submitted digitally only. AP 2-D Art and Design and AP Drawing students no longer mail their physical work to the AP Program. AP Art and Design portfolio components are now submitted by students through the AP Digital Portfolio. The AP Digital Portfolio opens in November 2022.
Review the following guides for complete details about the role of Art and Design teachers and students and share the student guide with your students. These guides provide important information about the digital submission process.
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. Students will also complete written evidence in the Sustained Investigation section by responding to two prompts within the AP Digital Portfolio.
For the Selected Works section, students submit digital images of five works that best demonstrate skillful synthesis of materials, processes, and ideas.
