Mounting and Presenting Students Work

Join us for a session on developing a great sketchbook with Nicky Simpson. Student sketchbooks will demonstrate their creative process, showing initial ideas, links to artists/designers to development of ideas.

How can your students ‘demonstrate the ability to construct a sustained line of reasoning, which is coherent, relevant, substantiated and logically structured’, in their sketchbook.
How can a student present ‘all their knowledge, skills, understanding and activities relevant to their creative journey’.
The sketchbook should demonstrate a ‘substantive, focused project, a progression of ideas rather than a series of disjointed tasks, and work should evidence all the Assessment Objectives holistically as well as cover the chosen areas of study’.

  • What is the best way to mount and present students work?
  • How can students work independently in their sketchbooks
  • Where and how to present annotation
  • How to cover all the assessment objectives
  • How to make connections to artists and designers, primary, mark making and developed work.
Nicky will show examples of good sketchbooks and how to get students inspired and presenting their work in a coherent and expressive way.
Your students are welcome to join the session, so please do get them to register.
