    Integrating the CS
    Hi Andrew, sources page not counted, uploaded separately. Font should be at least 12 point, simple and legible. Slides would definitely not be the same, altho some of the same artists may be considered with more of a focus on technique and...

    Art Making Forms Requirements
    Actually, yes. Because the art making forms requirement is 3 different forms from at least 2 of the 3 columns, and the exhibition has no specifications as to medium.

    Dear Heather Just a few technical questions: Is the list of sources counted as page? Is there a specified font? Can there be overlap between artists/photographers examined in CS and those in PP? I'm working on the basis that the slides would...

    Art Making Forms Requirements
    Could a HL student totally disregard the 3rd category and not do ANYTHING (PP or EXH.) work that is considered DIGITAL of LENS-BASED ART?

    PP Rubric for Students
    Hi Tony, I think the student can make the case for either one... depending on whether the focus is on graphic elements or on the time based aspects of the work. My advice is to spell it out clearly and say why it is considered this art making...

    PP Rubric for Students
    In the TSM, graphic novel & storyboard, appear in the "Time-based and sequential art" section of the Lens-based column; however, in the VA Guide both those art-making forms appear at the bottom of the 2-D column. Is this an official change...?

    The Comparative Study
    Bora, that is OK, if she is HL make sure she has made connections in her CS between the work she investigated and her own developing work, even process work is fine.
