The College Board is very specific as the contents of the portfolio but does
not dictate the themes or the media to use. Contact the "Board" to obtain
their guides and large posters that are given to each participant. On it will
be a brief description of the portfolio requirements. <A

This is what we are working on now....Judie is trying to organize us.

I know that the greatest emphasis is on drawing from observation, My kids

our heads together.

Look for a Teachers Workshop offered around the country in the Fall.
