All projects are reviewed based on a rubric.  This grading rubric addresses 5 areas that is used to help determine whether or not the student understands the concepts introduced in that lesson.  These criteria are; developing skills at grade level, understanding and applying the art concepts, general participation, use and treatment of materials, and finally behavior.
