    Unfortunately, it does not answer my question about the rules. I just want to know if it's allowed by rules or not.

    Hugs to you, Alleria, and I'll spell this out: I think there's no reason that it couldn't be painted, provided that your discussion focuses on it as sculpture.

    Mosaic seems to me, too, to be a fine choice for Alleria's breadth, glassgirl, and you're quite right that three-dimensional art isn't required. What LizCaffey and I were concerned about was the extent to which Alleria's other two original choices for breadth - colored pencil and either watercolor or acrylic/oil - might overlap with each other and with her concentration choice.

    If Alleria can do things with colored pencils that are demonstrably different from both ink drawing and watercolor or oil, AND if she can convincingly make the case for colored pencils making demands on the artist that neither ink drawing nor painting do, then that would work - but I suspect that making it work might not be easy. That is, from a test-taking point of view, it might be safer to go with a medium that is more obvious in its difference - and Alleria has already told us that she's done ceramics and sculpture.

    I have no disagreement with any of that. Minimizing overlap in ones breadth is important. It just sounded like (and perhaps I was mistaken) you were suggesting replacing the mosaic with something more three dimensional, which wouldn't solve the problem of watercolor and colored pencil pieces. If you were suggesting it instead of one of the other pieces, my apologies for miss reading!

    Anyway, not trying to step on any toes. ^^

    No worries, glassgirl: it seemed to me that you were entitled to an account of my thinking, and as a helpful side effect that Alleria and other readers who are considering their choices might benefit as well. Printmaking (woodcut, lithograph, etching), textile art (tapestry, embroidery, dyeing), and paper cutting would have been other fine choices, and I'm sure you can think of more alternatives than I can.

    No toes stepped on here, and thanks for weighing in!

    Will the costume for a ballet or play be a valuable option?

    Interesting idea. Would your photo be of the finished costume or of the designer's rendering of the costume?

    I could imagine it working - and posing potential hazards - either way. The test taker who submits a design risks getting distracted into discussing the design primarily in terms of drawing (this could be disastrous for someone like you with a concentration in drawing). Since you're submitting a photo of the costume, you'll be less tempted to veer off into discussing the work as a drawing, and as long as you're careful to focus on the costume in terms of visual art rather than home economics, you should be fine.
