In an AP Art and Design course, students develop the skills that artists and designers use, and create a portfolio of work that is assessed to produce their AP score.
The AP Art and Design program includes three different courses and portfolio exams. Visit the course pages for detailed information:
New in 2020-21
There will be no physical portfolios in the 2020-21 school year. This year, students will submit their portfolios entirely online through the AP Art and Design digital submission web application.
We’re also no longer printing physical copies of the AP Art and Design Portfolio Requirements brochure, which we used to mail to schools each year. Instead, information about the AP Art and Design portfolio requirements is on our student site.
