Experimenting for assignments

The only way to truly learn how to do something is by doing it. This applies not only to art practice but also to the more theoretical aspects of your study.

First establish a clear understanding of the standard Faculty requirements in relation to the structure and style of written assignments. These can be quite varied depending on each department's needs and the objectives of the tasks. As you gain confidence with your writing, you may then choose to experiment with interesting and innovative ways to express your ideas. A creative use of language can help you research and explore your ideas more thoroughly and may in turn influence your studio practice. It is always important to discuss any original approaches with your tutor.

Unless you have been given specific guidelines as part of the requirements for a particular unit of study, you can use your visual journal to record and reflect on your progress.
