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.
AP Daily Videos Now Available
AP Daily videos are short, searchable, on-demand videos that help teachers maximize class time with students, whether instruction is in person, online, or hybrid/blended this year. The first release of videos for AP Art and Design is now available in AP Classroom.
Get a detailed overview of your year by visiting the full AP Art and Design teacher timeline.

You’ll get access information for the AP Art and Design digital submission web application from your AP coordinator.
Share Access Information with Students
As soon as it’s available, pass access information (including your school code and teacher key) to your students.
Encourage Students to Continue Work on Portfolios
Support students who need help setting up their access to the web application and encourage them to continue working on their portfolios.
