ABSTRACT
The author discusses the Advanced Placement (AP) Studio Art program. The author believes that the program creates an enabling constraint on students' work. He argues that this constraint arises due to the nature of the portfolio that students must put together. He believes that students are aware of how these portfolios are assessed and this shapes the way they approach producing and selecting works to comprise their portfolio.
