Demonstrate mastery through any three-dimensional approach, such as figurative or nonfigurative sculpture, architectural models, metal work, ceramics, glass work, installation, assemblage and 3-D fabric/fiber arts. Develop technical skills and familiarize yourself with the functions of visual elements as you create an individual portfolio of work for evaluation at the end of the course."
At Ball we have a number of students who produce portfolios in ceramics every year which gain them credit in AP. Note that Ceramics are not the only 3D design medium.
