Examples from the work submitted in the 2011 AP Drawing Portfolio
As a requirement for my high school, I took the Advanced Placement Drawing portfolio my senior year. At the end of the course, you submit a collection of approximately thirty pieces to the College Board for evaluation. They asked for the following: twelve pieces related in content or medium, twelve pieces showcasing the variety of your skills, and a quality selection of your five strongest pieces.
