This unit takes an intermediate to advanced 2-D media (graphic design, painting, photography) student with a 10 piece portfolio through the steps of preparing, estimating budget, contacting, designing, setting up and publicizing an art show in the local community. They will analyze color, size, shape and theme of portfolio to determine a plan to follow and execute this plan with a local art showing of their original work. This unit provides a sample contract to have signed with business owner.

In addition to the CTE/STEM focus of the unit/project lessons, educators will find academic lessons in Math and English Language Arts (ELA) that supplement the primary core area of study.

Prerequisite: Students need to have a completed 10 piece minimum portfolio of original 2-D work.

The structure of this unit and the materials contained within it were created by Liz Moore (CTE), Dawn Guest-Johnson (Math), and Michelle Goodman (ELA) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Specialist Gregg Witkin.
