A brief description of the 3-D Design portfolio follows below. Complete descriptions of all the portfolios can be found in the

.The AP Studio Art poster also contains descriptions of all of the portfolios. For more information on the poster, click on the link above.
The Advanced Placement Program in Studio Art: 3-D Design is a performance-based visual exam. Each student develops and submits a portfolio that serves as a direct demonstration of achievement. The term "3-D Design" is used very broadly; a wide range of work can fit into this portfolio. Logically, work that is submitted for this portfolio will explore depth and space -- that is, the issues of working in three dimensions. Content, style, and process are completely open. Whatever direction the student chooses, the work should address such issues as mass, volume, form. Any three-dimensional medium may be used for this portfolio.
Because of the physical characteristics of work in 3-D Design, all three sections of this portfolio are submitted as digital images. Although images are less direct than looking at the work itself, documenting the work in this way means that students are free to work as large as they like and with whatever materials they like.
The portfolio they are required to produce for the Studio Art: 3-D is a performance-based visual exam. Each portfolio requires submissions in three distinct sections.
The portfolio for Studio Art: 3-D requires submissions in three distinct sections.
10 images; two different views of five separate works
12 images; some may be details
16 images; two different views of eight separate works
The Quality section promotes the development of a sense of excellence in art. For this section, students submit five works that best demonstrate excellence. Each work is presented by two images showing different views, for a total of 10 images. There are no preconceptions about what the work will look like-it may have been created quickly or over a long period of time; it may be derived from observation, imagination, or a combination. The five works chosen for the Quality section may come from the student's Concentration section and/or Breadth section, but they don't have to. They may be a group of related works, unrelated works, or a combination of related and unrelated works.

The Concentration section shows the student's in-depth exploration of a particular design concern. It is presented as 12 images, some of which may be second views or details of works. The emphasis is on a coherent idea and development of an idea through a body of work, in addition to the artistic success of the work.

The Breadth section shows the range of experimentation and experience in 3-D design. It is presented as 16 images -- two views each of eight different works. In addition to the quality of the work, this section is scored on the degree to which it actually shows a variety of approaches to 3-D design.
