Charles Rounds III of Power APAC has been selected for inclusion in the 2018- 2019 AP® (Advanced Placement) Studio Art Exhibit. The exhibit is produced annually by the AP Program to honor and celebrate the work of outstanding AP® Studio Art students. Rounds is the first confirmed artist to the exhibit. There will be only 30 works chosen out of 64,000 portfolios submitted.

 “This is truly an honor,” said Rounds. “I’m so elated that my artwork was chosen for this specific exhibit.”

Previously, Rounds won first place in the Second Congressional Art Competition. His work was displayed in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol Building for one year. He also won first place in the Picture Freedom Art Contest in August of 2017.

Power APAC had six visual arts students to pass the AP Studio Portfolio in 2017. 

Composed by the College Board, the AP Studio Art program makes it feasible for highly energetic high school students to take part in a college level study of art with the direction of devoted AP Teachers all through the school year. Toward the end of the year students submit portfolios of their work for assessment by college educators and experienced AP Studio Art instructors.
