This post can help students know how to make a great entry and help judges know how to score them! It isn't just about who the best artist is, it is about who can best communicate an idea with their art.
Concept related to theme and well thought out: YES! This student has put all their personal favorite yummy stuff. The difference between this and the previous one is that the first took almost no thought to come up with and this one took some real time and "reflection"!
Concept clearly communicated: Yes, I don't even need the artist statement, the concept comes through perfectly, I love the smiley face!!!
Artist Statement: "Yummy really depends on your point of view. Are you a fish or a cat?"
Concept well thought out, full of "meaning purpose and integrity": I still don't know what that means, but I tell kids and judges to look for emotional response, human connections, deep thought, art that motivates you to change or think differently, anything that really sets it apart. This student really "reflected" on the theme in a deep way and it is obvious.
Concept clearly communicated: Yes, it is very clever. Wow! Score 20pts.
