IB Visual Arts: Art Making Forms Requirements

In order to encourage ample experimentation with a range of techniques and media, there is minimum requirement of art-making forms to be addressed in the Process Portfolio. This exposure to various techniques/media, is also helpful for the student in discovering what art making forms she might want to delve into more deeply.The art making forms table separates art forms (and consequently often materials) into 3 main...

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?

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.

What if a student wants to make a collage from images from a magazines? I do not see collage on the list. If they decide to make a collage does the student need to reference every journal or magazine where they found the images?
Thank you,

Hi, Heather
Quite a number of my students have completed mixed-media pieces, in addition to painting and lens-based photography. Will they be marked down, as there is no specific category for mixed-media as an artmaking form.

not at can sort of chose which area to place it.. is it 2D, 3D..? State clearly which column the student intends it to be considered as....

Hello All, I have a student who would like to include web design as one of his projects for his process portfolio only. He would do investigated research on a web designer and create a web site for our school's Formula 1 team. Thoughts on this? Thanks, Fiona Stewart

I would love to hear others thoughts on this... mine are: if its for the PP it can be seen as an exploration of graphic design? Could he focus on the design aspects rather than the tech?
