AP Art is a year-long course designed as a student directed project-based class for DSHA seniors. Each student creates a body of work based around a central theme in the mediums of her choice, and her work is displayed to the DSHA community during the annual AP Art Show (held in May).
Students are expected to use time in and outside of class for in-depth research and art production. Along with preparing for the May Art Show, the AP Art course focuses on preparing an art piece for Scholastic competition and preparing a portfolio of artwork for presentation for college admission or scholarship.
