Don't wait till the last minute!! You have 3 (unless you plan on doing the 3D portfolio-then you have 2) works of art due on our first class!!!
1. A Concentration is a theme or idea that you will be using to create 12 works of art during the school year. Think of a CONCENTRATION idea for the AP class and create one work of art about that idea. If you would like to see a list of concentration ideas or see visual examples,
2. Draw a crumbled or folded paper bag. This can be a small paper sack or a larger paper/grocery sack. The focus should be on capturing values, shadows & highlights. Use an ebony pencil, conte-cryons or charcoal.
3. Candy drawing
This is a drawing, painting or collage of candy, done with color, still demonstrating values (shading, shadows & highlights). Think about your composition. Will the candy be going off all edges of the paper (m&m’s), will the candy be leading your eye from left to right (lollipops) or will the candy be centered (gum bubble)?
1. A Concentration is a theme or idea that you will be using to create 8 works of art during the school year. Think of a CONCENTRATION idea for the AP class and create one work of art about that idea.

2. Clay Totem Pole
Using clay, create a totem pole that you will bring back to Winnetonka to be fired. A totem pole consists of carvings of animals and other characters that typically represent characters or events in a story. The carvings may symbolize or commemorate cultural beliefs that recount familiar legends, clan lineages, or notable events. Basically, the totem pole should communicate a story. An example could be Grandma on the bottom of a totem pole, Little Red Riding Hood in the middle and the Wolf on top (maybe with his mouth open-facing down so the other characters are spilling out).
