AP Portfolio Score:5
Rationale for Score
There is an excellent application of 2-D design principles to a broad range of design problems in this section.
In this breadth section:
- The work clearly demonstrates original vision, a variety of innovative ideas and/or risk taking (images 2 and 10), and inventive articulation of a broad range of the elements and principles of 2-D design: unity/variety (images 3, 5, and 6); rhythm (images 4 and 7); figure/ground (images 8 and 10); contrast (images 9, 10, and 11); emphasis (images 1, 2, and 3); repetition (images 9, 11, and 12) and proportion/scale (images 8 and 10).
- The work clearly demonstrates a broad range of intentions or approaches (still life, landscape, interiors, portraiture, motion, digital manipulation, and a triptych).
- The work as a whole is confident and evocative; it engages the viewer with visual qualities, for example, verve (image 2) or nuanced subtlety (image 10).
- The work is technically excellent; materials, composition, and media are used effectively to express ideas.
