Students will review their portfolios for the class midway through the semester or trimester. Each student will select what they consider to be their most successful work and their least successful work, based on the dimensions of creativity, craftsmanship, composition, and communication of content. They will write artist’s statements in response to guiding questions that support their selections. The students will then present their artist’s statements. Students should be familiar with the terms “creativity,” “craftsmanship,” “composition,” and “communication of content.” The assessment will conclude with students engaging in peer critiques.
