Final exam for semester 1

by JuliannaKunstler.com

Final exam consists of 2 parts:

  • Portfolio (80%) - All assignments for semester 1 (excluding worksheets). If an assignment is missing or unfinished - it needs to be completed for a full credit.
  • Portfolio critique paper (20%)


Collect all art projects that you created during the semester (if you do not have the project itself – you should submit a good quality print of it).

Please arrange them in the order you created them.
All projects should be finished. If any of them are not completely done – please make sure they are completed by the final exam day.
I’ll be grading your portfolio based on:

  • Are all projects finished?
  • Your personal growth as an artist from project to project
  • Did you follow the technique instructions?
  • Craftsmanship and attention to details.
