My Best Artwork: Selecting, Evaluating, and Preparing Artwork

My Best Artwork: Selecting, Evaluating, and Preparing Artwork

Students will examine, review, and reflect on a collection of their own artwork (original or digital versions) and select one piece to present to the class, school, and/or community at large through a class exhibit. Each student will use the artwork to create a poster that includes the artwork and a personal artist’s statement that evaluates the artwork based on a given prompt.

This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.


This is an analytic rubric. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.
