The Best of the Best of AP Studio Art

Exhibit Hall
Opening Reception: Wednesday, July 11, 5–8 p.m.

Artworks by 30 AP Studio Art students will be on display in the Exhibit Hall during the conference. Selected from more than 25,000 portfolios that were submitted for evaluation for the three AP Studio Art Exams this year, the artworks represent the best of the best.

At the AP Exam Reading in early June 2008, college, university, and secondary school art instructors carefully review the portfolios using rigorous standards. Their evaluations enable colleges and universities to acknowledge and encourage students' accomplishments by granting appropriate college credit and placement.

This exhibition of accomplished work by AP Studio Art students features art executed in a variety of media. It represents extraordinary clarity of thought and a great diversity of content, style, and technique. The exhibition indicates the sophisticated level of achievement that students can attain while taking an AP course.
