This bundle pack is every single worksheet, presentation, project, rubric, and critique sheet that I hand out for my advanced level high school art course, you won't have to plan for a year. This is a year long art class, and is the final visual art course before students can move into Advanced Placement® (AP®) Art. 

These projects are advanced level and this unit is easily modified to options for AP® Art guided assignments. This is enough to fill a year of advanced art classes, everything you need to teach every day, or it can be split into an advanced drawing semester and an advanced painting semester. In AP® art students choose 5 out of the 14 projects to complete as guided assignments to teach them about inquiry based art making.
