IB Visual Arts: E submission Process Portfolio

Both the CS and the Process Portfolio are submitted as PDF documents with a prescribed number of "screens" for each level.Students can compose these screens however they want, using a combination of scanned journal pages or partial pages, photos, images, text, handwritten and or typed .

Hi Heather. Can you confirm if it is true the 'double dipping' rule has been removed and images of exhibition work can now be used in the Process Portfolio. Many thanks.

Heather McReynolds 17 November 2017 - 18:23

Yes Laura its true...used in relation to the developmental stages, not as stand alone images ;)

Hi Heather,
Anita here from St. Stephen's in Rome. Is there an easily accessed guideline of deadlines for ecoursework submission? Where do I find it? I know the IA is April 10th. What about the others? Also, are the IA selected sample students still chosen by the IB, or are we supposed to choose them this year. Thank you!

Ciao Anita! yes, the e submission deadlines are published on this page thinkib.net -
they are the same as last year. IA samples are automatically selected on IBIS once you have entered your IA marks, all best!

Hi Heather, Sabine from Geneva here. My students have a problem with their PP upload. The size of the file is a problem. When compressed the quality of images blurred. What have I missed?

Heather McReynolds 16 March 2018 - 10:23

oh dear, images blurred is no good. How did they compress file? max file size is 20 MB which is quite large. Heres the advice about image size in pdf:
Resize images for presentation to a maximum height or width of 1,500 pixels, optimized for web and devices. This will significantly reduce the overall size of your file, without compromising the image quality when viewed on a screen

Hi Heather, I'm wondering about double-dipping from the CS - Is it ok for the students to include the same artist that they used in their CS in their process portfolio as well? Obviously not the same page in each, but using the same artist as a reference and inspiration?

Heather McReynolds 29 March 2018 - 12:12

Rhonda, what ive told students and teachers is if they include the same artist, to look at a different piece of work by that artist, and focus on the process and technique more than in the CS.

Hi Heather, I have 2 students that did a site-specific work in the gallery. The photo of the work is in the gallery, does that count as an Exhibition photograph or as on of the Screen count...

Heather McReynolds 20 April 2018 - 10:05

Hi Doug, good question- but could you clarify: do you mean the photo of the installation is included as one of the artworks in the exhibition? Of course even if the installation is being presented as a final art work this can be documented, discussed and included in the PP...
