Art Project Ideas: A Guide to Subject Matter Selection
Read the Fine Print
Rating
5.0 stars
Overview:

Whether specialising in Painting, Graphic Design, Photography, textiles or Sculpture, most high school Art students begin by selecting a topic for their Coursework or Examination project. One of the most crucial decisions an IGCSE, GCSE or A Level Art student has to make is what subject or theme they will spend the year exploring. It is a decision that many find difficult, whether due to a lack of inspiration, an inability to discern between two or more possible ideas or a general misunderstanding about the type of topic that is appropriate. This resource contains a step-by-step guide that students can use to brainstorm, evaluate and select (in conjunction with advice from their teacher) an outstanding topic for their high school Art project.
