    Hello,

    It’s that time of year again – time to assemble student portfolios for review.  The state certified teachers want to see samples of work.  What would you suggest I submit for composer studies/artist studies?  We’ve read the biographies and studied the works, but what should I show as proof?

    Thanks in advance for your helpful replies.  Smile

    I have a 3-prong folder that holds a notebooking sheet for each poet, composer, artist, hymn, & folk song we study. I also include any art done in the style, if available.

    Ditto missceegee. I have them include the info about this person, which work was their favorite, and why. It is such an interesting thing to see their personal preferences. I have been surprised a time or two. =) Sometimes our creative art challenges are based on a famous painting, so I include those, although I could easily use a photo of them with the finished product if I hadn’t kept all of them.

    Okay, that sounds good.  Do any of you use something specific for notebooking about artists/composers? or do you just make your own?  I’d like to have something different than just a written narration on lined paper.

    Thanks!

    There are specific artist pages there too and you might see one for someone you studied this year.

    Thanks, ladies, for those links.  I tend to feel overwhelmed if I were to just do my own search…your links helped guide me in the right direction.  I found on Debra Reed’s site http://notebookingpages.com/free-resource-center/ a free Durer picture study notebooking set and other pages that can be used with any artist.  Hope this helps someone else too!

    Thanks again!
