By no means is this list exhaustive. This list does contain resources is for all three AP Studio Art Portfolios, Studio II, Advanced Art, and all Jewelry courses. It does not include a variety of other art history and contemporary information that will change as the assignments change and evolve to meet individual student needs. We also use a wide variety of slides, videos and other print materials as needed to help students further develop their skills and understanding.
