Midway through our AP drawing concentrations something wonderful always happens... everyone seems to make great strides. Students start to mix media more, work larger and investigate their ideas in more visually interesting ways. I really think this happens because we have increased our confidence, experience and overall understanding of what a concentration is. The first few months of AP are spent feeling it out and panicking about the sheer quantity of work needed to complete the exam. With nerves out of the way and a sense of accomplishment we typically move forward. Now we just have to get through these last few months.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
