This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS3 in Art and Design for children aged 11 to 14 in years 7 to 9. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with producing creative work, exploring ideas and recording experiences.
As KS3 students develop their skills and abilities in art and design, they will subsequently learn how to organise their ideas and record their experiences in order to inform their project planning and provide them with a bank of visual imagery which will support their art. Recording ideas may take many forms - from quick and simple sketches 'in the field', to photographed images and perhaps even a collection of ideas and ephemera which inspires and consolidates ideas for a particular project.
An initial concept or idea for a project usually begins with the question 'What do I want to create?' This question may lead to the artist exploring many different possibilities and cause them to experience and experiment with many different media, stimuli and processes. Recording the outcomes of these experiences and experiments will underpin a project, as a selection may end up being woven into the finished artwork.
Ideas can be recorded in sketchbooks, binders or folders and may consist of images, notes, scraps of texture, cuttings and sketches. An organised artist knows when and where the inspiration was sourced and can access ideas with ease.
