Creating Journals

 

During the Art Foundation Course your journal is your companion. Your journal should be a record of every stage you have been involved in during the making process.   You should include initial ideas, thoughts, spontaneous drawings /sketches / photographs / tutorial notes / Peers comments / plans and photographs of your work during its   development through to the final creation.

 

You can also look to document notes from any practical workshops/ gallery visits/ programs or websites that link to your project and ideas.   You should link your work to the work and ideas of both historical and contemporary artist. It is also important that your work draws on any themes from life or past and present   cultures.

 

The making of your journal should be personal and reflective account of your work. lt should be made in a ┬álive sense ie) as you make the work.   It is important that you allow yourself to record in a spontaneous way as things come to mind.   It is not a perfect document to be presented for assessment, It is a record of your journey and process and you should look for ways to use methods of using your journal in a direct approach.
