Organizing your projects and seeing the design process through from early stages to completion is a key part of becoming a proficient artist. Exploring your ideas before deciding on an initial concept, plotting out the design stages, working on experiments in media, learning from mistakes and becoming adept at self-critiquing all form part of a creative process which even professional artists use.
Organizing a large art project is a little like planning a journey: you need to decide where are you going, how you are going to get there and what you will need along the way to make your journey a comfortable, satisfying, successful and safe one. Having a strong idea about where the project should end up, and yet being flexible enough to cope with changes and unexpected outcomes along the way, makes the entire creative journey far more enjoyable.
Exploring ideas is one of the most enjoyable parts of art. Middle school students should already be familiar with the correct way to use a sketchbook. They should also be comfortable when experimenting with combinations of media, as well as critically evaluating both their own work and that of others. All of these elements are crucial when considering the success of a new creative project.
