Artist  images & sketchbook pages

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

 

This page is focused on 9 popular themes in alphabetical order:

1: Anatomy 

2: Animals

3: Buildings/Places

4: Flowers

5: Food

6: Human Form/Figure

7: Landscape

8: Objects/Still Life

Researching your theme and finding artists you like, is usually where the project begins.

Development of ideas, is also about taking inspiration from artists, developing their techniques to further develop your own work and your skills. 

Watch each video or click on the picture to see the artist name, then explore their work further by looking on Pinterest or google. Also take time to watch the videos of the student sketchbooks that have been created based on their chosen artists.
