Not quite a college question, but I figure it has to do with education. Is that okay?
SO, I'm in AP Studio Art for some random reason this year. And I've got sort of a simple question that I can't seem to find an answer for, from either my teachers or the CollegeBoard materials and website. So, for those who have already taken the course or have a general idea of whatever the heck goes on inside the massive abyss that is CollegeBoard...
Are you allowed to use Photoshop (and similar programs) for Studio Art (Drawing)?
My class is set up so that you don't really have to decide which subject you're picking (Drawing, 2D Design, 3D) until we start submitting pieces. But I'm kind of wary of starting any digital pieces if I'm going to be doing the Drawing subject. Apparently (according to my teacher), I could simply submit my art to the 2D Design section if I paint digitally, but looking at the description of the course, it clearly says to incorporate "design elements", which I'm not so sure could be accurately portrayed unless I were actually doing graphic design. And I don't really want to jeopardize my score over something stupid like this by submitting my stuff in the wrong category.
I could not use a digital program, but I'd like to have a little variety in the media that I don't suck at.
Yep, that's it. Thanks in advance?
