AP Art History

Prerequisite:  Introduction to 2D Art.

AP Art History is a course based on the content established and copyrighted by the College Board. The course is not intended to be used as a dual credit course.  The AP Art History course is equivalent to a two-semester introductory college course that explores topics such as the nature of art, art-making, and responses to art. By investigating a specific image set of 250 works of art characterized by diverse artistic traditions from prehistory to the present, the course fosters an in-depth, holistic understanding of the history of art from a global perspective. Students become active participants in the global art world, engaging with its forms and content, as they experience, research, discuss, read, and write about art, artists, art-making, and responses to and interpretations of art.
