Originality of Student Work

IB Visual Arts: Originality of Student Work

Our students must make their art work themselves. This is an important point to clarify. The importance of the process and the crafting is integral to the work that is presented for the final exhibition.In the case of designs for work not executed by the student, the design and plans may be considered as part of the work submitted but not the piece if it has been realized by someone other than the student.

This a very useful exercise and through this students will be able understand the 'Art making' journey. The example used here is very appropriate.

One of my students has use a laser cutter to etch her original design into the surface of a leather jacket. She wanted to demonstrate surface decoration on a 'ready made' object. She will indicate this in her exhibition text. Is there anything else she should document?
Thank you.

I think if she explains her intentions, the technique used and the ready made object, this is sufficient.
