AP Art History
Course Syllabus 2015-16
Instructor: Cathy Payne

Course Description:
AP Art History is designed to be the equivalent of a two-semester college
survey course, focusing on painting, sculpture and architecture from ancient times through the 21st
century. Approximately 65% of our time will be dedicated to art made in the Western/European
tradition with the remaining time spent on art from beyond the European tradition (i.e. African,
Asian, pre-Columbian Americas). This course will prepare students for the AP Art History exam by
helping students develop the skills necessary to identify, describe and analyze works of art, both
visually and contextually. The main goals for the course are for students to understand the role of
art in historical context and to develop an appreciation for art.
Coursework:
It is expected that all assignments are completed and submitted on time. Late
work is accepted according to the WPHS policy. The highest score you can earn on a missed
assignment or quiz for an unexcused absence (or coming to class late and missing a quiz) is 80%.
You will complete a notecard for each of the 250 artworks/objects denoted as essential for the AP
Art History exam. The list of 250 is posted on the class website. Notecards should be completed the
night they are assigned. The template for notecard completion can be found on the course website.
Notecards may have a drawn or printed image. Please note: any notecards not completed before
the final bell for class are considered late – this includes attaching an image or completing
information fields. Every space should be completed on the card and if you are unsure of what to
write on a notecard complete it in pencil so it can be changed once you are clear. Our processing of
new knowledge depends on taking notecards seriously! Notecards may be either 3 x 5 or 4 x 6
inches in size and should have lines on at least one side.
You will be required to maintain an interactive notebook throughout the year. This will be an
invaluable tool as we reflect and prepare for the AP exam. You need one college-ruled composition
notebook for the course.
Resources:
You will be assigned reading primarily from two resources: Smarthistory.com and
our textbook - Art History, Marilyn Stokstad. You will not need to bring your textbook to school.
Other resources will be listed on the class website. In addition, class lecture slides used before the
redesign of the AP Art History Exam are on the class website to use as an additional resource.
Course grade:
Marking period grades are weighted: .60 for tests and quizzes, .35 for
notecards/notebook, and .05 for life skills. The life skills grade is calculated at the end of each
marking period by deducting 3 points out of 100 for each unexcused tardy or absence. Scoring
rubrics for individual assignments will be provided throughout the year.
Contacting Mrs. Payne:
The best way to reach me is by e-mail: [email protected] I
check email in the evening at least once before 8:00 pm. If you need extra help with a topic or
assignment that is not resolved easily by email, see me at the beginning of class to set up an
appointment to meet before or after school.
