Selected 2-D Design Examples
Shana Hoehn, D Breadth Readers’ score: 6 “Color usage… is restrained and purposeful.” “Communicate(s) [a visual idea] through subject content, media handling, and text.” “Through the informed shifts of proportion/scale, the student creates hierarchical viewing patterns that keep the viewer engaged.” on/ html
Lauren Hensens, D Design on/ html#
Lauren Hensens Readers’ score: 6 “The work demonstrates excellent applications of technique to design problems. For example, these include the use of emphasis through color…approximate symmetry and repetition… and the use of textures.” “Technically, the work is of excellent quality and explores a variety of media as well as design principles.”
Laura Haney, Design Breadth Readers’ score: 6 This work demonstrates the use of perspective and layered images. “The section demonstrates a serious exploration of various approaches to design and application of design principles. “ on/ html
Laura Haney, Design Breadth Readers’ score: 6 This work demonstrates color and unity of composition. “The works exhibit subtle tonal values as well as high contrast.” “When the student uses color in the digital work, it seems embedded as part of the composition…” on/ html
Switching Gears: the AP Drawing Portfolio
Seeking Originality in the Contemporary T on/ html Colored pencil, pencil, acrylic by Lauren Robie, 2008 Drawing Breadth
Lauren Robie, 2008 Drawing Breadth on/ html# Reader’s score: 6 This work was created in markers, acrylic, photos, pencil, pastel “Considerable experimentation and risk- taking …and the juxtaposition of multiple styles …(show) conceptual complexity and sophisticated visual thinking.” This piece was also noted for “gestural fluidity”
Note the Gesture and Expression in both Clifton Green 2009 Honoré Daumier
Abstraction of Forms Note the use of high keyed color, neutral color and selective use of line. Nicole Dyer, 2009
Student Questions Do breadth and concentration have to relate to each other? No, they do not. With photo realism, is it possible to lightly print the photo on paper and then paint over it? Yes, you can draw or paint over a photo for the sake of transforming the idea of the photo into something new. I would not do this unless it is your own original idea. In 2-D Design can the artist also include elements of depth like drawing does? Yes, depth is a consideration with some 2-D concepts.
Student Questions Does 2-D Design have to be in color? Because color schemes are a 2-D design consideration, the breadth has to have a couple of strong color works. Is each section scored separately, then averaged to create a composite score, or is there just a final score? It is my understanding that each section is scored and then added together by the college board and then statistically compared to create the range of scores from 1-5. Do the pictures in breadth have to relate to each other? No, they do not. They can relate though!
