Quality with Student Samples
The Quality section promotes the development of a sense of excellence in art. For this section, students submit five works that best demonstrate excellence. There are no preconceptions about what the work will look like — it may have been created quickly or over a long period of time; it may be representational, abstract, stylized or it may show a combination of any of these characteristics. The five works chosen for the Quality section may come from the student’s Concentration section and/or Breadth section, but they don’t have to. They may be a group of related works, unrelated works, or a combination of related and unrelated works.
