Create a non-electronic artwork on a theme of your choice
You may draw, paint, sculpt or construct (construct a collage or art installation for example). The initial EDX1250 coursework with visual art will help prepare you for creative art making. There are many non-electronic art form possibilities discussed in the course Text Book. These reveal a broad range of possibilities for your project. Importantly, self-directed research into art style and culture will inspire you with ideas. (You may decide to create art with a ‘social, personal or political narrative’ but also explore other possibilities with ‘visual language’. Refer to the Text Book on meaning and communication using the elements and principles of art.)
Important – It is required that you create anew – work conducted prior to commencement of the course must not be used. Note that photographs revealing stages of progress of your artwork are required and this is outlined in Component 2.
If you already have particular skills with art, use this opportunity to expand them and to focus on the teaching and learning aspects of art making and course objectives that require reflection on the actual process.
This task allows you to explore and develop your creativity and artistic skills. Work closely with the assessment criteria presented in the Marking Sheet provided. Note that you are not graded on personal qualities such as ‘talent’ or ‘artistry’.
Component 2) Create a personal website with artwork photos
Create a personal website and upload a minimum of 3 photos of your artwork to your website. In addition to the completed artwork photograph, a minimum of two other photos must reveal the artwork in various stages of completion. Three-dimensional works may require more to reveal the scope of the work.
There is a range of free Internet website builders offering this facility. Examples are Wix, Webnode, Weebly, Webs and Yola – to name but a few. Ensure your site is operational and the URL must be included on the provided Assignment 1 Submission Sheet (downloadable from the Study Desk). Further information about website construction is available on the Study Desk.

Component 3) Reflecting on the art making process – 1200 words
Reflect and report on the art making process. This written submission must address all of the following points –
1. Describe the theme of your artwork and the meaning or message you have sought to convey.
2. Describe your preparatory research for the project. Reveal the art styles or cultures and the artists (where appropriate) that have helped to inspire you. What specifically motivated your approach?
3. Describe the materials, the tools and techniques you have used.
4. Outline the evolution and development of your ideas as you solved the problem and challenge of art making. Comment on ‘personal growth’.
5. Reveal new understanding – Describe how the design elements – line, tone, colour, shape and texture (each, where appropriate) have been used to create your desired effect.
6. Reveal new understanding – Describe how you have used the design principles- balance, rhythm, proportion and contrast (each, where appropriate) have been used to create your desired effect.
7. Read the Text Book topic – “Recognising creativity”. In light of this reading and having created your artwork, what new understandings have you developed about “what creativity looks like” and “creative dispositions and creative actions”?
8. Read the Text Book topic – “Developing children’s aesthetic sensibilities”. In light of this reading and having created your artwork, what new understandings have you developed that will assist you in your role as a teacher of aesthetic awareness?
