AP Art History
This Advanced Placement course follows the intensity of a college course. This class will focus on art through a world history perspective, to examine the what, where and why of many famous works of art and the civilizations in which they've developed. This class explores the beginnings of art to today's contemporary masterpieces through lectures, discussions, publications, films, activities and more.
Critical thinking skills are developed through evaluating artwork. The process involves students analyzing visual information, gathering evidence and drawing connections between history, sociology, psychology, politics, math, science and other art forms. This helps students recognize and relate the purpose of artwork as well as its importance in history.
This is a writing intensive course and students are required to write essays, research, papers / projects as well as take the AP Exam. The AP Exam is a college level assessment of student knowledge and understanding, according to the expectations of The College Board.
Good scores may result in students receiving college credit hours.
