   C. Select, manipulate and refine arts concepts and processes to produce artworks that visually communicate their experiences, ideas and viewpoints.

   D. Develop and use criteria for making judgments about artworks and visual imagery and use descriptive language when talking and writing about works of art.

   E. Connect the content of visual artworks to interdisciplinary concepts, issues and themes.

2. Artists will grow and achieve by developing the following Ohio Visual Art Standards Enduring Understandings:

   A. Personal Choice and Vision: Students construct and solve problems of personal relevance and interest when expressing themselves through visual art.

   B. Critical & Creative Thinking: Students combine and apply artistic and reasoning skills to imagine, create, realize and refine artworks in conventional and innovative ways.

   C. Authentic Application and Collaboration: Students work individually and in groups to focus ideas and create artworks that address genuine local and global community needs.
