  • Originality: Is the work of original origin? How does the work build upon existing assets? What creativity is shown in the work?
  • Technique: What quality is the work? Was the work skillfully created? Was appropriate time allotted to complete the work? Does the work express talent? Is the composition interesting and well-constructed?
  • Impact: What impression does the work make? Does the work successfully portray the artist’s intent? Does the work invoke meaning or emotion in the viewer? Is the work aesthetically pleasing?
