All Art classes at Cary-Grove have the same goal...
for you to
THINK like an Artist
ACT like an Artist
And BE like an Artist.
Summative Grade consists of
Participating at least one piece of art in our Spring Art Show
Creation of a Portfolio that shows your evidence of Thinking and Acting like an Artist
What is a Portfolio?
This portfolio is constantly updated and changing.
It will be graded halfway through the course and at the end. I will provide you with specifics of what you need to do to get the grade you want for the course.
How do I earn the grade I want?

The portfolio displays artwork that shows evidence of investigating all possibilities and as a whole shows continuous effort, interest and growth throughout.. Portfolio is organized and customized. Every project is complete and presented with additional attempts, extra work and reflections. The portfolio contains evidence of growth in technique and the programs used in class. The portfolio demonstrates the student’s strong understanding of the 5 criteria and refers to them when reflecting on their work and areas of strength/weaknesses.
The completed portfolio demonstrates an effort to do what is required for the course. The portfolio contains evidence of all assigned work and matches the checklist provided by the instructor. Portfolio documents evidence of learning all programs used in class and participation in assignments, reflections and critiques. The portfolio demonstrates the student’s understanding of the 5 criteria and refers to them when reflecting on their work and areas of strength/weaknesses.
The incomplete portfolio demonstrates some incomplete assignments &/or reflections. The portfolio demonstrates participation in class, but student may not have used time wisely resulting in incorrect or unrevised work. The portfolio contains some evidence of growth within the programs presented in class, but work could be improved with revisions. The portfolio shows unclear evidence that the student is familiar with the 5 criteria and does not use them to reflect on their work and areas of strength/weaknesses.
The incomplete portfolio demonstrates incomplete and/or missing work and is lacking evidence of growth and learning. Portfolio is disorganized. The student often does not participate in class and/or does not use time wisely resulting in work that needs to be revised and/or completed. The portfolio shows minimal evidence that the student is familiar with the 5 criteria and does not use them to reflect on their work and areas of strength/weaknesses.
Not There Yet
The incomplete portfolio demonstrates little to no effort to participate in the class as it is missing many assignments, reflections and classwork. The portfolio shows little to no growth in techniques & programs because there is not enough work to judge. To earn a passing grade the portfolio needs to be reworked and resubmitted.
