Arts Day 2018 Guidelines and Rubrics

Stage Events

Stage Event Guidelines

● Each grade will plan six to eight events (at least three DIFFERENT types and only two technology-heavy, amplifier types) for the stage, using 20-40 minutes.

● Students and advisors work together to discern the events.

● Each event must have faculty supervision and must be approved by the Fine Arts Committee. The Fine Arts Committee members are available to all chief advisors to aid in discernment related to content or quality questions.

● These events may consist of performances in music, readings, dance, montages, and other performances appropriate for the stage.

● Events will be scored according to a rubric that includes skill, difficulty, and connection to the theme.

● Any individual student may not be in more than three stage events.

● Submit information to Mrs. Moyer via Word documents (at kjmoyer@dock.org) or share with Mrs. Moyer via Google.docs.

● Students can create the documents themselves, but the chief advisor must approve the documents, and evidence of such approval must be included with the document submission.

Deadlines

December 15, 2017 – how many events and the type of events

January 24, 2018 – titles and participants involved in each event

February 8, 2018 – all final details and theme explanation for the program (including A.V. requirement form)

Theme paragraphs: Carefully written theme descriptions of 50-75 words are required for each event and will greatly help the judges award the points in this area. Descriptions will also be read aloud between the performances. Please include approximate minutes of the event. Due by February 8.

● For each deadline that is missed, the class will receive a .5 deduction in score. It is better to take a deduction and put on a quality performance than to continue with an ineffective plan.

Except in the Technology Class Event, all powerpoints, website pictures, and the like are enhancements to stage events only.

Scoring

Rubrics will be used to score all events/entries.

A half-point will be deducted for each minute under or over the 20-40 minute time period.

All stage events are averaged together to receive an overall stage score (out of 100).

● The top four culinary entries from each class will be averaged. Zeroes are calculated if the class has fewer than four entries.

● The top four visual art entries from each class will be averaged. Zeroes are calculated if the class has fewer than four entries.

● The top two photography entries from each class will be averaged. Zeroes are calculated if the class has fewer than two entries.

● The top two fabric arts entries from each class will be averaged. Zeroes are calculated if the class has fewer than two entries.

● The top two creative writing entries from each class will be averaged. Zeroes are calculated if the class has fewer than two entries.

● Since there is only one required technology entry per class, that score will be used.
