This is your Summer Breadth Homework.

You will complete four of


these assignments over the summer, as it will give you a head start for
the school year. The breadths are carefully decided for you by subject
matter, content, design, medium, etc.

The rest of the 8 breadths will be completed in school along with the
12 concentrations.

When working on canvas, please refrain from using stretched canvas. It


can be damaged in your AP portfolio and the AP board frowns upon
stretched canvas. Use canvas board instead or paint on 1/8 panels.
Also, if youre going to use paper, please use the right medium for the
right paper. For example, dont use watercolor on pastel paper. In fact,
invest in good watercolor paper, such as Arches, or learn to stretch
your watercolor paper so it doesnt buckle as much.

Sizes. When working on your breadths some sizes will be decided for
you. If they are not, here is the rule. You may not work on anything
smaller than an 8x10 inch size. You may not work on anything bigger
than a 16x20 inch size in paper, or an 18x24 inch size in canvas board
or panel. The AP portfolio that is used to send in your 5 qualities (5
best works) will not fit anything bigger than an 18x24 inch work. There
is no wiggle-room.

These four breadths will be graded at the start of school.


I will try my best to be in contact with you throughout the summer. If
you have any questions dont hesitate to email me.

Reminder: You must refrain from copy art, fan art, or work
from the Internet. Take your own images.
Copyright infringement is taken seriously by the AP board.

DO NOT SIGN YOUR NAME ON ANY OF YOUR WORK. IT CREATES


AP BIASE.
SUMMER BREADTHS
Inspiring Words
Take one of the words from the quote below and use it to guide and
inspire a work of art. Subject matter will be up to you, but consider
what will best facilitate your concept. Try to avoid the obvious, the
literal, or the clich.

The visual arts invite students to explore realms of thought that move
away from the mundane and ordinary to the festive, the ritualistic, the
spiritual, the fantastic, the world perception and observation, the
incongruous, the playful, the elusive, the transcendent, the clouded
and mysterious, the devious, the captivating, the anxious, the sublime,
the obsessive, the eminent, the revelatory, and the evocative.

Walter Askin, Professor Emeritus


Studio Art: Mainstreaming the Muse, AP Art Studio Teacher Guide
California State University, Los Angeles

Festive, ritualistic, spiritualistic, fantastic, perception and observation,


incongruous, playful, elusive, transcendent, clouded and mysterious,
devious, captivating, anxious, sublime, obsessive, eminent, revelatory,
evocative.

Comparative Artist Study


Choose two artists, one you like and one you hate, and combine the
two styles in a culminating piece. This will require some research,
which you should do in your sketchbook. No Bob Ross. Dont even think
about it.
Size: 16x20 inches

Architectural Perspective
What better way to explore perspective than with a cityscape? Use our
local architecture to connect a little more personally with your work.
Take several photographs of buildings, houses, and other architectural
structures. Go downtown; walk through your neighborhood, go to a
warehouse. Look for interesting lighting, crop in on a staircase casting
shadows, include multiple buildings or focus on a single structure.
Choose something that allows you to use linear perspective.
Size: Minimum is 11x14; Max is 16x20 inches.
Medium: Pencil or Ink
Piles and Stacks
Create an image that is inspired by the theme Piles and Stacks. This
could be literal or conceptual. You might look for existing subject
matter or set up your own. Repetition should be the guiding
principle of this piece. Use a medium and size that allows you to
accentuate the theme (But still be aware of the size requirements). Be
creative with this.
