INFLUENCES and IDENTITY: Summer Project 2010
If you are starting an Art course in September 2010 (year 12)- you need to complete the below Art Summer project. You will be expected to present this to your peers and tutors during the induction week of your Art course.
Now like other summer projects, this is very open and again down to personal interpretation.
The title is influences and identity- we will need you to think about what you are inspired by and what influences you. For example- does the music you listen to shape who you are? does the clothing you wear allow you to become someone? do you have a person whom you look up to and therefore molds your identity? There are many influences a person can have and that take part in the shaping of someone. They are personal and higly important.
We are asking you to look into your own creative and artistic identity- thinking about ALL those things that have shaped you.
We want you to create a series of art works (in ANY Media) that highlight not ONLY your identity BUT the influences that you have been exposed to in order to show who you are today.
There is NO right or wrong answer- we cannot comment on your personal influences, we are looking for thought-out, structured, creative, original pieces of art work which excite not only ourselves when engaging with them but excite and inspire you, the artist.
If you have ANY further questions or help on starting points, please email Cat. Further details have come to your via the post.
