Created by me for personal use in my classroom, but too good to keep to myself! I created this resource to facilitate a close examination of each artwork within the AP Art History 250. I wanted my students to be able to have meaningful and consistent practice with the foundational elements of artwork analysis. In the past my students made notecards, but I found this to be restrictive. I wanted to encourage my students to interact with the visual elements of the artwork in question and most importantly create a useful tool in preparation for the AP Art History exam in May.

In my class students are required to keep a separate binder for these notetakers. The design is clean, modern, and appropriate for a secondary academic setting.
