AP Exam Time is Upon Us!

AP Studio Artists – ALL OF YOU – Double Check your 9 Concentration Works and the 9 Breadth works… RESOLVE your blog page – EXAM – This is your EXAM! Statement… IMAGES… CONCENTRATION, BREADTH. Make sure it is FINISHED for SHARING with the WORLD. After the end of the year your name is removed from editing… The TWO AP Exam questions will be answered above your CONCENTRATION gallery.

This will be finished and shared BEFORE you come to the final exam period. TALK TO ME, CALL ME or EMAIL if you are having issues with the site. If you are having issues and I DO NOT HEAR FROM YOU, you will not get credit for the final exam.

Using this WEBSITE, answer the two questions (taken directly from the AP Poster). Use as many of the characters that are allowed as possible. You may want to type them up in Google Docs PRIOR to inserting them into the website SO THAT you have a count of characters (Tools – Word Count (it counts characters too)…

ON YOUR CONCENTRATION PAGE…

  1. Clearly and simply, state the central ideas of your concentration (500 CHARACTER maximum).

  1. Explain how the work in your concentration demonstrates your intent and the EXPLORATION of your idea. You may (and should) refer to specific images (artworks) as examples. (1350 CHARACTER maximum).

IN YOUR CONCENTRATION GALLERY – insert (or reorganize) your images in order YOU FEEL They should be looked at when reading your concentration. Remember that the idea is to show development and investigation of the topic. This does not necessarily mean that they will be in chronological order and you may not have finished 9 concentration works BUT you do need to have the required number of images.

TALK TO ME, CALL ME or EMAIL if you are having issues.

Let’s Get This Year Started! 2016 – 17 – Here We Come!

Let’s take some time to learn how to build your pages and making your photographs. Lots to cover this week and lots to learn.

First and Last name is the title of your page. Spell it correctly – Capitalize it properly. NO NICKNAMES (short names are ok – I mean if your a Nicholas and you go by Nick or an Abbigaile and go by Abby). Let’s insert an image too – just to show how to do it. ALSO – begin your page with an answer to these two questions. Let’s get through this together!

  1. Clearly and simply state the central idea of your concentration. (500 Characters Max.)
  2. Explain how the work in your concentration demonstrates your intent and the exploration of your idea . You may refer to specific images as examples. (1350 Characters Max.)

These are places to start and will be modified as we move forward in the year. No worries – we are JUST LEARNING right now.

As we build the 3 pages for each of you – under the MY SITES on the upper left screen of the ADMIN PAGE – it seems to work BEST if we use the WP Admin page versus the “New and Improved” Page – I’ll show you when we go through the process.

LASTLY for now – ORGANIZE your photographs in your online cloud based account (school one works best if we need to use Google Classroom later) in 1 folder (AP Studio Art) with 3 sub-folders (Raw Images, Concentration, and Breadth) so that you stay ORGANIZED!

HERE ARE THE RAW IMAGES FROM MY CAMERA!
