Goal Wall for Art Room

Here's my required Goal Wall...I was resistant at first, but it has turned out to be a good thing to have. The kids can use a piece of free draw when they finish a project to draw the "art goal". This past month I've had the question : Can you draw a realistic face?
I have about 25 clothespins on a string that I simply clip the artwork to. The kids submit their art and at the end of the day I look through it and hang it up if they accomplished each goal.
Once we fill up all the clothespins, I will change the goal.
The objectives poster is a piece of laminated poster paper that I wrote on with dry-erase marker, that way I can easily change out the goal without making a whole new poster.
Here's some of my realistic faces that made it on the Goal Wall.
