DEFINITIONS:

Each art submission is measured using four separate components: composition, skill/technique,

originality and craftsmanship.

Composition: The plan, placement and arrangement of the elements of art, and the application

of the design principles in a piece; measures student’s ability to affectively design the picture

plane.

Skill and Technique: Rendering and use of materials, tools and mediums; measures student’s

knowledge, aptitude and ability to render with authenticity.

Originality: The act of conveying mood, sentiment, feeling, spirit and character in artistic

execution; measures student’s ability to create expressive powerful works that clearly reflect the

student’s original point of view.

Craftsmanship: Level of attention to the finished product and presentation of the artwork;

measures the student’s effort and ability to create works that demonstrate pride of workmanship.

Portfolio and On-site Drawing are weighted equally.
