The AP Art and Design course was developed by College Board AP® leaders and raters.
Why take an Online program for art?
The AP® program centers around the practice, experimentation and revision and a sustained investigation of materials, processes, and ideas, while also focusing on the student’s creative vision. Students will meet multiple teachers through the course. They learn the best from all the expert in different areas. Students will create 15 pieces and iArt teachers will supervise until they upload their completed portfolios in May no matter how early they finish their portfolios.
Class Meetings and Deadlines
Students and teachers meet once or twice a week for either 30 to 60 minutes, depends on the student’s schedule. The program runs 26 weeks long and is designed to span between 7 to 9 months, depending on the student’s pace, although iArt Institute will allow up to a full year for completion. Some students meet every day during the summer, giving them ample time to complete their AP® portfolio by the submission deadline of May of the following year.
How do we Meet?
Students and teachers meet via Zoom or other webinar sources such as Go To Meetings, but they can communicate via text and email whenever the need arises. IArt Institute uses a learning management system (LMS), and has all class projects available online. Students will save and upload their artwork with our LMS, making it easy and organized for student to complete all work.
Do Students need experience?
iArt’s AP® Art and Design program is a hands on, one-on-one course taught by the best and most experienced AP ® Art leaders, raters and teachers. We cannot guarantee students getting the highest score; however, 80 percent of our students get a 4 or 5, with a score of 5 the best. If students are not able to keep up with the course, we will reach out to parents and discuss how best to support them to finish the program. It is not mandatory for students to have an art background. We will, however, evaluate students to make sure they will be able to score well.
Whether a student’s school has an AP ® Art and Design program or not, our online curriculum is the most efficient program for discovering your child’s creative strength and weakness because our teacher to student ratio is 1:1 as opposed to a classroom setting. We also create a customized program for each student’s needs and skill levels.
If students need more skills we provide Pre- AP Art and Design course
