Accuracy of Landscape

Did the student create a foreground, middle ground, and background within their painting? Did the student include a creek in the foreground with other natural elements in the background?

Advanced

The landscape is clearly drawn with a foreground, middle ground and background. Detail has also been given to item scale with large objects in the front and smaller objects in the back. A creek is present within the drawing and has the appearance of moving towards the foreground.
Proficient

The landscape is clearly drawn with a foreground, middle ground and background. A creek is present within the drawing as are other natural elements in the background.
Basic

The landscape is drawn with a foreground and background but no middle ground is visible. A creek is present within the drawing but does not have the appearance of moving towards the foreground. Some natural elements are included in the background but they are not drawn or painted according to scale.
Below Basic

The landscape is drawn with only one level (the landscape only includes one of the following: a foreground, middle ground or background). A creek is not present within the drawing.
Watercolors

Did the student use various watercolor techniques within their painting such as washes in the background and more detailed application in the foreground? Were colors applied consistently and evenly?

Advanced

Watercolors were applied in a neat and creative manner. Colors were evenly and consistently applied (there are no "blotchy" dark or light areas). Washes and neutral colors were used in the background. Brighter colors were used with more detail in the foreground.
Proficient

The application of the watercolor is fairly neat and creative, however, there may be a few areas that need some work (some colors may need to be more evenly and/or consistently applied). The student used washes in the background and attempted to add detail to the foreground.
Basic

The application of the watercolor is not very neat or creative. Many areas are lacking and/or incomplete. The student used only washes throughout the entire piece.
Below Basic

The application of the watercolor was not done in a neat or creative manner. The watercolor looks sloppy, as though no effort was put into the project.
Review and Reflection

The student is able to point out each area within their piece and how they created a sense of depth.

Advanced

The student can point to the foreground, middle ground, and background within their painting while also discussing the techniques they used to create those areas.
Proficient

The student can point to the foreground, middle ground, and background within their painting.
Basic

The student can point out the foreground and background but not middle ground is present within their painting.
Below Basic

The student cannot point to the foreground, middle ground, and background within their piece because only one level is present. The student did not complete a written response.

The student practiced utilizing all watercolor washes, lifting techniques, salt resist, overlapping lines, and layering.
Proficient

The student practiced utilizing most watercolor washes, lifting techniques, salt resist, overlapping lines, and layering.
