Artist Resources

AO1: Develop ideas through investigations, demonstrating a critical understanding of sources

 

This is where the project begins, through the development of ideas, but more importantly, it is about taking inspiration from artists and also developing their techniques to further develop students own work and also their skills. As teachers, it is important that we broaden our knowledge of artists to ensure work is original.

Below is a list of popular themes alphabetically with over 150 famous artist images.
