Some of my favorite letters to new AP students, from those who’ve survived it!

At the end of the school year, I ask my AP Studio Art students to write a letter to the new kids entering the class in the fall. I ask them to be honest and not hold back. They share the good, the bad and the ugly of AP Studio Art and I think their words are valuable for those of you about to embark on this journey. This class is like no other you’ll ever take in high school and new students need to know to know what to expect. Hopefully, you’ll learn from the experience of students who sat nervously in the same seat, just a little while ago.

    Great letters – and excellent idea for a blog post! I should get my own students to do this too! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
