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:


Information about the AP Art and Design portfolio requirements is on our student site.

Physical work for AP 2-D Art and Design and AP Drawing must be mailed to the AP Program. Students will also submit their work online for all portfolios (2-D, 3-D, and Drawing).

Digital Submission

AP Art and Design students upload images of their work to the AP Art and Design digital submission web application over the course of the year, creating a digital portfolio. See examples of real student work at the 2021 AP Art and Design Exhibit, which showcases outstanding artwork created by students for the May 2021 exam.

AP Art and Design teachers and AP coordinators will be notified when the application is open in November 2021. AP Art and Design teachers play an important part in helping students access and use this web application. Digital submission guides for teachers and students are also available:
