Technical Skills
Exceeds the Standard Craftsmanship and presentation of the collage as a whole, is high quality. Attention to detail is fabulous. There are very few, if any gaps in the paper pieces. Gluing and modge-podging neatly hold pieces together. Image is mounted well and with care on white tag board.

Meets the Standard Craftsmanship and presentation of the collage as a whole, is good quality. There are few gaps and/or little white space showing, which do not detract from the overall appearance. Gluing and modge-podging hold pieces together. Image is mounted well on white tag board.

Meets the Standard Shapes of features are defined, using different values. The collage represents the photograph and a good likeness is achieved. Overall, the face appears three-dimensional.

Partially Meets the Standard More attention is needed in defining the features; it is difficult to see the difference between the features and/or the face with background. It is difficult to see that the face/features are three-dimensional; they look flat. Little or abrupt changes in value are apparent. It is difficult to see a strong relationship between the collage and the photograph.

Does Not Meet the Standard This collage is not complete and/or does not meet the criteria of the project.
