Tools Project, Techniques Checklist and Evaluation Guidance (IVAN's GROUP)

    In your sketchbooks the following work should be present:
    • At least 1 sustained pencil drawing of your tool completed from direct observation.
    • A series of thoughtfully lit and composed photographs of your tool, include thumbnails of your whole shoot and print the best shots at A5/A4 and put in sketchbook.
    • 2 or more other drawings of your tool in your sketchbook, these could be in pencil/biro/fineliner.
    • Expressive large scale stick and ink drawings, ideally photograph for inclusion in sketchbook.
    • A3 chalk and charcoal drawing onto midtoned paper.
    • At least 2 good monoprints.
    • One or more Gold Card plates cut and printed (present plates and prints in your book).
    • A3 Collage base with monochrome mixed media interpretation of your Tool worked over the top.
    • 2 images produced through creative use of the Photocopier - e.g. Inverts/Colour Overlays/Colour Conversions based on your existing drawings and prints.
    • Minimum of 2 good Food Dye and bleach pieces (working into photocopies of existing drawings/prints).
    • Several spray stencil experiments, layering and repeating your motif to create interesting compositions.
    • Research into Jim Dine and Florian Nicolle (see earlier post for details).
    • Acetate Collage (ideally worked into with sewing machine).
    • 2 or more layered Photoshop developments of your work, scan existing pieces and combine them, consider addition of text.
    • Spray Paint Artist research (see earlier post for details).
    • 400-600 word, word processed evaluation (see guidance below).
    In order to pass this project, you will need to write a short evaluation.  This will clearly define the processes and techniques you have investigated, as well as outlining any high moments and low moments.
    • Begin by giving a brief outline of the project – describing what you were being asked to do. Talk about why you selected your particular tool, what design and drawing opportunities did it offer you? What visual qualities appealed about your tool?  - mention specific shapes, colours, textures, surfaces, details etc.
    • Talk through all the different processes you encountered, keeping it brief & informative, which were the most successful in your view, & how have your existing skills been extended in the process. Use the checklist of techniques above to ensure you cover everything.
    • Talk about the artists you researched (Dine, Nicolle, Banksy etc.) why they were relevant and how you used what you learnt about them in your own work.
    • Reflect on how you worked throughout the project, did you manage your time well? What things might you have improved upon?
