ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Artists in the 2020 AP Art and Design Course really faced adversity and rose to the occasion. These creative, talented and skilled young men and women worked on their individual portfolios in and out of class until the necessary closing of our school and then committed to creating the remainder of their art work at home in order to be ready for the AP exam. They are the creative and innovative thinkers of the future. In the words of our own Governor, Tom Wolf,
"Join me in congratulating an incredible group of young people who got dealt a bad hand and are still keeping their heads up.
Congratulations to the class of 2020."
Here is a little film with their faces and the the titles of the Sustained Investigations for their individual AP art portfolios.
