Process Portfolio


Task summary

The process portfolio is an externally examined assessment task worth 40%.

To complete the task, you are required to present documentation of your experimentation, exploration, manipulation and refinement of a variety of visual arts activities during the development of your body of work over the two-year course. The documentation may include carefully chosen samples, which may be extracted from your visual arts journal and other sketchbooks, notebooks and portfolios, as well as preliminary and developmental artworks that have not been included in the exhibition task. The work is submitted as a series of screen-based slides.
