    The AP Program in Studio Art is intended for the highly motivated student who is seriously interested in the study of art. Students should, however, be aware that AP work involves significantly more commitment and accomplishment than the typical high school art course and that the program is not for the casually interested.  Note that the CHS AP Art program is a two-year program. The basic structure of the course is to prepare a portfolio for AP evaluation. Students can choose a general approach to their portfolio selections (painting, clay, photo, etc.), or they may concentrate in just drawing. The course will be offered on a yearly basis to allow students to present a portfolio in the spring of the second year. Two-year participation is recommended, but students may opt for one year of study in either their junior or senior year.  (This course does not qualify for NCAA eligibility.)
