The resource provides students with a step by step guide to developing an effective sketchbook. Suitable for Middle and High school students.
Emphasis is placed on observational studies, analysis of the work of artists and crafts-people, exploration of materials and processes and the development of ideas through informed decision making and making links between areas of research. The book can also be used by teachers, helping to structure their teaching.
The book can be used in a very literal sense with lower attaining students, or as a scaffolding structure for higher attaining students.
This resource has been developed by Mael Matthews, experienced Head of Subject and Senior Art examiner.
