When thinking about Advanced Placement courses, AP is often perceived as one of the “easier” AP classes in the eyes of some students. AP Art, however, is one of the most challenging AP’s Wesleyan has to offer with one of the heaviest workloads.
For these artists, their work starts in the summer with the completion of their summer visual journal. Over the summer, the AP Art students each had to complete a summer visual journal full of their work. Artists had to complete 10 pieces of art and photographers had to complete 100 pieces. Many students had to come to school to work on their pieces using the resources at Wesleyan. These pieces are used to make a base and see the artists’ basic skills, and some of their pieces can be used for final projects. “I loved working on my visual journal over the summer. I planned my pieces for the year and got to do some experimenting. I am really happy with how my pages turned out,” said Senior Ashton Cameron.
