In last week’s lesson Year 12 students were asked to think about their identity as an artist. Students had to write down one word that described another student’s work and attach them onto the back of that student. In the end the students had a word to describe their own work from each member of the class. It was really interesting to see how certain themes were mentioned again and again. This helped the students to understand how their work is perceived by others and also hopefully helped them work out just ‘what kind of artist’ they are.
Students followed this up by writing an artist statement, a difficult thing to put into words! It was a great lesson – we wish yr 12 students good luck in their upcoming Art exam on the 24th March.
