Specifically designed for mastering the AP Studio Art exam. Learn all the rules and requirements of portfolio submission, the difference between being Pollock and the guy who made that thing one time that looks like something Pollock might have thrown away (but only if you squint), and more elements and principles of design than you can shake a stick at. Bonus section: What to do when you're suffering from a crippling case of Blank Canvas Syndrome. No, the answer is not "taking one of those showers where you sit in the corner with your clothes on.
Who doesn't like to check/cross/lick things off a list when you're done with them? Nobody, that's who. (Except maybe that last one.) Keep track of your portfolio progress with our printable checklists.
