Today we are creating portfolios to keep our work in. A portfolio is a folder to keep work in over time. An artist's portfolio shows progress over time, can be used when you are older as an audition piece for college, or as a resume of work done as a professional. In our art class, we only need a portfolio to keep our work safe in the classroom.
We will also be making name tags to keep in our portfolios. The name tags help me remember and/or learn your names in the first week of class. After that, they can stay in your portfolios until there is a substitute teacher in the art room. If you come in and see a sub, you should pull out your name tag and set it up to make life easier for the substitute teacher!
