End of Trimester Process Portfolio

At the end of each trimester you will submit your Process Portfolio in Saved in Google Slides or a PDF and submitted on Google Classroom.  Each time you turn it is you will be adding more and more content.


Each time you submit it you will include:

  • Photos of ALL completed studio works
  •  Analysis of all studio works (see Process Portfolio Template)
  • Photos of all works in progress
  • Progress photos of most artwork
  • All homework assignments from that trimester (both photos of journal drawings and written work).
  • Cite all sources in MLA format (see link).


50% of your trimester grade will be based on the quality of Studio Works as displayed in the photos.

The remaining 50% of your grade will be homework assignments, engagement, work ethic, clean up and respect for supplies, participation) and any other small activities done in class.


Your completed Process Portfolio will be submitted for EXTERNAL EXAMINATION during March of IB Art 2.  Therefor I will not grade the content that is put into your PP each trimester but I will be offering feedback and assistance on each of the drafts you submit.


For now the Process Portfolio will be a "Dumping Ground" for all of your Studio Works.  During the start of IB 2, we will be refining which works will be removed from your PP and put in your Exhibition.
