Kiarra Leverett – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS Advanced Placement (AP) students’art portfolios were collected Monday to be submitted to the College Board for grading.

Throughout the year, Mustangs in AP art have been creating 15-20 pieces that will be used in their portfolios.

According to the AP website, students need to “share a basic, two-section structure, which requires you to show a fundamental competence and range of understanding in visual concerns and methods.”

The AP art portfolios contain two sections: Sustained Investigation and Selected Works.  

The Sustained Investigation is 60% of their total score while the Selected Works is only 40% and each section has different requirements.

Mustang senior Vitor Fentermaker said, “I feel confident in my artwork because I know I have the skills and have practiced a lot.”

Their portfolios have no set theme and are chosen by each Mustang individually.

“I feel confident that my theme was very apparent to the person grading it,” Junior Skye Hane said.

Senior Grace Kelley said, “Submitting an AP portfolio can be stressful considering the deadlines, but it’s still manageable and a good opportunity for me to earn college credit.”
