-Francis Bacon


Midterm Exams will be in the form of a Portfolio Review. Students will sellect 8 of their best works of art and 10 of their best sketchbook pages. This work will be photographed and submitted online to their Google Drive turn -in folder and added to the folder titled, "MidtermExam." Photos of the artwork must be well photographed, cropped, and left in their native .jpg file format. These image files must be renamed to the students name + the title of the artwork on Google Drive. The sketchbook pages must be well photographed, cropped, and submitted as a .pdf. For more information, go to the Midterm Exam page.
