The tasks have been designed to enable me to investigate key trends, movement, styles and events in a chosen area of art and design and understand how these have affected the development of artists or designers work. I would gain an understanding of the work and use my investigations to influence the development of a personal idea and a final piece of creative work.
I could choose to investigate the historical development of artists, designers or craftspeople from any specialist area, for example – fashion, textiles, painting, photography, animation, illustration, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking and product design etc.
My investigation would help me identify one artist or designer of particular interest and then carry out a practical investigation into their work. This would be demonstrated through painting, drawing, sculpture or printing. My final piece of personal creative work can be reviewed against the work of the artist of designer who inspired me.
