Section #: 4052 (ART 3D AP)
This portfolio is intended to address sculptural issues as related to depth and space. Design involves purposeful decision making about how to use the elements and principles of art in an integrative way. For this portfolio, students are asked to demonstrate proficiency of 3-D design through any three-dimensional approach, including, but not limited to, figurative or nonfigurative sculpture, architectural models, metal work, ceramics, and three-dimensional fiber arts. Any work that makes use of (appropriates) other artists’ works (including photographs) and/or published images must show substantial and significant development beyond duplication.
