Artistic Technical Skill

This piece demonstrates an effective use of both Elements of Design (LINE, TEXTURE, COLOR, SHAPE/FORM, VALUE, SPACE) and Principles of Design (REPETITION, BALANCE, EMPHASIS, CONTRAST, UNITY) and establishes a clear purpose for the medium chosen to the observer.

This piece demonstrates an effective use of at least two of the Elements of Design AND at least two of the Principles of Design. The purpose for the medium chosen may not be clear to the observer.

This piece uses only one effective use of the Elements of Design and at least one of the Principles of Design. The purpose of the medium chosen may or may not be clear.

This piece does not rely on the Elements of Design or on the Principles of Design. The artwork does not convey a clear purpose in medium chosen.

Creativity

The piece is the student's own creation. The piece represents a unique/fresh presentation of Climate Science. It is not similar to other students' works. It is effective in its uniqueness and not simply different for the sake of being different. If ideas have been borrowed from popular or canonical pieces, the student's own changes are obvious and effective.

The piece is the student's own creation. The piece may look similar to other pieces, but it differentiates itself enough from the group to reflect the student's own creativity. If ideas have been borrowed from popular or canonical pieces, the student's own changes are obvious and effective.
