All art must be YOUR original work and can be from school projects and/or outside of school. Your portfolio must include these 4 required works done within the past year. Please include a short artist statement typed into Artsonia that includes the media, inspiration, and your likes/dislikes about each piece.
***Having lots of experience or being "good" at art will not determine your placement in art elective. Attitude, willingness, and work ethic are far more important. Completion of homework and maintaining a sketchbook are valuable requirements in all middle school art elective classes.***
