A Guide to Creating A Visual Arts Portfolio
Manette Jungels and Marianna Tschudi, along with their students, have created an online guide for students as they assemble their Visual Arts Portfolio for demonstration of proficiency. This online guide provides the Providence Visual Arts Standards, rubrics, and suggestions/checklists for types of work to include.

This project was supported by a RICAPP grant.
