How is my child graded in art?
It is important to know and understand that everyone is an artist in their own way!
Students are assessed using the LCPS Visual Art Standards.
Assessments are NOT based on the child's artistic talent but rather:
- how they apply the skills taught
- how they express meaningful content
- the level of craftsmanshop they put into each piece they create
- their understanding of art concepts
Below are the assessment marks you will see on your child’s report card and a description of each.
