Art Projects Rubric

Judging for Art Projects

Art projects include creative projects in various forms. That includes creative writing. If the project is in the arts and humanities but is research on art rather than art itself, use the Liberal Arts Research form instead.

1) Content - The exhibit must include:

  • Student name (or names, if more than one student is presenting the exhibit)
  • Collaborators, adviser(s), and department(s)
  • A short title of the exhibit
  • Funding sources (if applicable)

2) Display

  • Quality of the technical execution in the artwork
  • Attention to how the artwork is displayed

3) Oral Presentation - Each student should prepare to describe and discuss his or her exhibit, tailored specifically to make the work understandable to a non-expert audience.

  • Description should be clear and concise
  • Presentation must not exceed 5 minutes; judges will be instructed to observe this time limit.
  • In cases where the student worked with collaborators, including his or her adviser, the presentation should clearly describe the student's role in the overall project.

4) Creativity and Originality

  • All in all, does the project show creativity?
  • Are there indications of original, critical thought?
