Went back and coloured my mermaid sketch!
For art school how do you 'pass'? Everyone's art is different & I was wondering how people grade art?
Heya, sorry for the delayed response!
It’s like you said, everyone’s art is different, so how they are graded also varies from professor to professor. I can’t speak for other schools except for mine (which is Emily Carr University for anyone wondering), but my experience is that if you are able to show you understand the parameters of an assignment and execute it to the best of your abilities, you will do fine. The amount of effort put into a piece of art is usually very discernible, especially if your professors know you and your practice, which they will eventually as you progress through your years at whichever school you attend. Within the Illustration major that I’m in, my professors do not factor in ‘style’ while grading, as everyone has a different approach to their practice. It’s the idea/concept and technical understanding that are taken into consideration.
I hope that helps answer your question!
