TOWAMENCIN – As another school year enters its final turn, the season for AP tests looms closer. For the students in the North Penn High School Art Department, that means it’s also AP Art Show season.

This year’s annual AP Art Show will take place April 22 form 6pm-8pm in North Penn High School’s J-Pod. Community members can get a glimpse of some of the finest artwork created by some of North Penn’s most dedicated artists before they become famous.

Kolleen Keefer and Joanne Carrick have 30 AP Art and Digital Photo 3 students participating in the AP Art Show. Each student creates 24 works of art for a portfolio that ranges from 2D and 3D design to Drawing. These portfolios are submitted to College Board and students can potentially earn college credit. Unlike other AP tests which are written exams, these portfolios consist of art pieces which are an in-depth exploration of drawing and design concepts. The AP Art Show displays 5 art works from each student’s quality section of the portfolio; these works are physically mailed into College Board and therefore, are not available for our main art show at the end of May.

More information about the many offerings in the NPHS Art Department and other events and recognition for the school’s budding artists can be found on the NPHS Art Department Website.
