Course Curriculum and Content:
The AP Art History curriculum and content is structured around the big ideas and essential questions that frame explorations of the nature of art, art making, and our responses to art.
Each content area is represented by a number of exemplary works of art within a prescribed image set of 250 works. The image set consists of approximately 65% works from the Western tradition and 35% from the non-Western artistic traditions. Students will also be asked to attribute works of art outside the image set based on their knowledge and understanding of works within the set; attributions should be provided in the same format and with the same level of detail as identifying information for each work of art within the image set.
