Exam tip: every year there is a question about African Americans or women.

There is 1 DBQ. Everyone does the same one of that. 

There are 4 choices for the FRQs. You write 2. You must write an essay from the first category, which is pre-1900, and you must write an essay from the second category, which will be from the 1900s or later.

It is YOUR job to research and know these topics, their related facts, and their implications. I’m not going to do that for you. It won’t help you in the long run. Study well, study strong. I’m probably going to keep posting a bunch of review questions on here. Look them over, but in general, STAY OFF OF TUMBLR! You should be studying.

61/100 • so close to the weekend! I just have to nail tomorrow’s exam (here’s hoping), and then I’m going home and making a beeline for my bed. Thunderstorms are forecasted for the afternoon and I’m hoping for another big spring shower. 🌧🌧

AP ART HISTORY REVIEW 2015

AP SEASON IS UPON US! 


In the next two weeks or so leading up to Thursday, May 7/ the day of the AP Art History exam, I will be running a queue reviewing major works/artists/periods of the APAH curriculum. I’ve done this for the past few years and lucky for you this is last year I’ll be doing this as my affinity for the art historical canon has waned considerably since studying art history in university. 

Here are useful links you can use right now:
- artists, art historical periods, etc. that I tag!
- questions I have already answered about studying, the exam, etc.!
- a page of other online study resources!

Good Luck and Happy Studying!

MORTUARY TEMPLE OF HATSHEPSUT, Deir-el-Bahri, Egypt, 18th Dynasty

Hatshepsut’s temple rises from the valley floor in three colonnaded terraces connected by ramps on the central axis. The complex and all of the statues and reliefs it contains constitutes the first great tribute to a woman’s achievements in the history of art. In the middle colonnade of the second level, for example, painted limestone reliefs commemorated Hatshepsut’s divine birth. She claimed to be the daughter of Amen, who had assumed the form of the pharaoh Thutmose I in order to impregnate her mother, the king’s principal wife.
