Strategies and tips for organization and implementation the studio course will follow.   Participants will engage in a series of new activities using a variety of methods according to their level of expertise.  This study will include both technological, photographical and by-hand surface preparation processes.  This body of work could be in the form of a deconstructed journal, surface preparations using strategies developed by the instructor, or an independent study.

Participants will be introduced to creating a blog, the use of apps and YouTube videos and discuss the implications of using the technology in the AP Studio Art course. Participants will engage in creative imagery exercises to stimulate creative choice with their students. The issue of teaching students benchmarks for “quality” in art forms will be addressed with the use of reflective, summative and oral evaluation systems. The Reading and scoring the portfolios will be reviewed and discussed, from the vantage point of a reader, through an overview of images. AP Central and other instructional resources will also be discussed and shared.
