We hope these resources are useful. 

1. How to revise/be independent . . .

a) Investigate the chosen theme looking for key vocabulary linked to it. Collect a wide range of images that best suit your understanding of the theme. Research at least two artists whose style, techniques or themes match to what you have chosen and are of interest to you.


b) Ensure you have a clear understanding of the theme chosen from your own point of view. Produce initial sketches of ideas in rough form and annotate. Test media and techniques and show progress alongside opinion. Constantly review your own work. Keep practicing your key skills (pencil, paint, observational drawing etc). Discuss work with your teacher. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ND1Y0rUqB3M
