Artist project

  1. 1. Year 11 GCSE Art ‘Artist’ Project For your final unit of coursework you will be looking closely at the work of one artist (of your choice) and creating your own work in response to this artist’s work. To begin with you will all be exploring different media in various workshops. Then you will choose one of 5 briefs to complete the rest of the project on your own.
  2. 2. Choose and respond to one of these 5 briefs: Theme 1: Narrative & Sequence Theme 2: People Theme 3: Assemblage Theme 4: The Environment Theme 5: Street Art and Graffiti
  3. 3. Theme 1: Narrative and Sequence A narrative is simply a story. Narrative art is art that tells a story. Much of Western art has been narrative, depicting stories from religion, myth and legend, history and literature.
  4. 4. In modern art, formalist ideas have resulted in narrative being frowned upon. However, coded references to political or social issues, or to events in the artist's life are commonplace. Such works are effectively modern allegories, and generally require information from the artist to be fully understood. The most famous example of this is Picasso's Guernica.
