About the AP Art and Design Program

Explore essential resources for AP 2-D Art and Design, AP 3-D Art and Design, and AP Drawing.

New for 2022-23

Starting this year, all portfolios (2-D, 3-D, and Drawing) will be submitted digitally only. Students will use the AP Digital Portfolio to submit their portfolios. 


Students develop the skills that artists and designers use, and create a portfolio of work that is assessed to produce their AP score.
