2015 Student 2, 2-D Design: Quality

AP Portfolio Score:

4

Rationale for Score

This work displays a good use of the elements of design and application of 2-D design principles.

In this quality section:

  • The work shows good use of the elements of design, but the application of 2-D design principles is not always successful. The student’s application of the principles (balance, figure/ground, and emphasis) is not consistent.
  • Some clear decision making in the use of design elements (value, line, texture, color) and some intention with respect to the application of the principles (repetition, balance) are evident.
  • The work shows engagement with experimentation and/or risk taking with materials and media, but with uneven success in some of the pieces.
  • Some of the work has evocative qualities that engage the viewer, though confidence is not always obvious.
  • Some of the work demonstrates good technical competence and use of materials and media; technical aspects and articulation of ideas do not always work together.
