I treat my sophomore Art 2 class like a boot camp for AP Studio Art. I encourage students to treat each project and assignment as a potential addition to their AP portfolio, and I would like to think that the majority of the assignments we produce in this course are worthy of AP. That first project in September, when students come back from the long summer break, serves as a refresher for the processes and techniques we use in my class. Each student sets up a miniature still life of colored wooden blocks and they go through the techniques of obser - vational drawing, using perspective, and changing media to develop a final product. Near the end of the year, I was searching for a culminat - ing activity and decided to review my lessons and images, hoping inspira - tion would strike. Jude Saleet H I G H S C H O O L DAMAGED Goods
