Can my student trace a photo and enter it into the drawing category?
- No. ALL WORK MUST BE ENTIRELY CONCEPTUALIZED, DEVELOPED, AND CREATED BY THE STUDENT. This includes no tracing of their own work or someone else’s work. Grid work or graphing out from a student taken photo is ok. Ex. Student wants to draw a lion. They go to the zoo, take a photo of the lion, print the photo any size. They may draw grid lines on the photo and work from the grid. They may not trace over the photo they took. No public domain images or even purchased images may be used. Only images captured by the student themselves.

They may not use images they did not create themselves including but not limited to teacher taken photos, public domain images, and images purchased.
