Can you self study AP drawing?

I am homeschooled but I have taken ap exams at my local public highschool before. I would really like to take AP drawing. I am pretty good at art and have taken art classes at my local art museum so I think I have the experience necessary. But I cannot find any information on how to submit a portfolio without a teacher. Do you have to go through a teacher or is there an alternative way to submit? If so, where could I find information on that process?

Hi there! It looks like you need to have a teacher to submit a portfolio. Perhaps you could talk to the art teacher at your local public high school? Maybe they would be willing to meet with you every now and then and be your teacher, even if you're homeschooled.

You could also contact the College Board directly, as they would be more knowledgeable:
