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
This year, students will submit their portfolios entirely online through the AP Art and Design digital submission web application. There will be no physical portfolios in the 2020-21 school year.
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.

Help Students Access the Digital Submission Web Application
Make sure students have set up their access to the AP Art and Design digital submission web application and have chosen the correct portfolio type.
Encourage Students to Continue Work on Portfolios
Ensure students continue to work on their portfolios and upload images throughout the winter and spring.
Establish a Deadline for Students to Finalize Their Portfolios
Establish and communicate a firm deadline for students to forward finalized digital portfolios to you so you have time to forward them to your AP coordinator.
