Question I've got some highschool art questions :)

Hi, there !
Aound where I live, art classes are literally non existent. Highschools here do not offer art. I do take classes from a local painter, but I need something more along the lines of an actual highschool art class. I just recently found out about the ap art test? I'd like to get in with this but I have no idea about any of it :/ . Any central Alabamians here that can point me in the right direction? Or, can ap art be taken online somehow? I've tried finding answers to my questions and can't find anything.
If anyone can help, thanks!

{btw, if anyone knows of a class that would be helpful, I'm willing to drive a good ways- Auburn, Bham, Lagrange, Jacksonville}

Re: I've got some highschool art questions :)

Excellent determination to meet your personal goals! I've looked through the ap art, and it's quite interesting.

https://apcentral.collegeboard.org

https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/p...escription.pdf

A careful read of this document makes me think that you could set this up as a mentor ship with an art-knowledgeable teacher (not as a full-one "on the books" course). The content is entirely up to you, I think, then in a collaborative way, meeting up with the mentor/teachers to assess the portfolio content to see if it meets the ap art criteria. There is actually a line in the document about ap art being in some cases "self-directed", and also "home schooled" - and that ap art is an evaluation process, not a skill/craft teaching process.

The self-determination to do this is a measure of the self-determination of a successful artist. Good luck!


There is very high-quality, and free on-line material out there for some of the art skills, as well.


Not a full-on specific answer, but I think you can do it. I did this for all my high school courses for one year back in the day. Entirely on my own, just met with a teacher once a week to check in how I was doing. It's not for everybody, but the alternative education model worked for me and a bunch of other determined, self-directed kids who were otherwise at that time board stiff in class. Not quite the same as your art adventure... but... shows what a determined and disciplined high school student can achieve.



cheers

Thought I would add this:

https://artprof.org/about/clara-lieu/

Professor Clara Lieu, via the Art Prof sites (web and youtube) offers a great deal of content for the art student, as well as portfolio critiques.


Just saw this notice, about making a submission for a fee critique:
