Theme Investigations: Collect images to create a visual vocabulary as inspiration for the theme. (5). Create mindmaps to record the learner’s investigations and inter- pretations of the theme (5). Make small drawings and sketches of possible images concerning the theme. (5) Task Description: Research (10) 2. Examine books/magazines/publications/art graphic galleries/ art museums/ the internet etc. to find information on any graphic aspect of the theme. 3. Compile the information as an annotated text document in the A3 work book. 4. Interview: (10) Record an interview with an artist/draughtsman/printmaker/ art critic/ curator/art spokesperson/ art lover on any aspect concerning the graphic theme. 9 Task Description: Create a drawing/print in a specific technique. (50) 5. Choose a specific technique and create a drawing(s)/print(s). 6. After completing the drawing(s)/prints fill in the questionnaire on the properties of the materials chosen by the learner: (10) 1. What type of artwork did you create? 2. What is the approximate size of the drawing(s)/print(s)? 3. Which materials, media and tools did you need to complete this artwork? 4. Which media did you need and what was the approximate cost involved? 5. Where did you store your equipment while in the process of completing the artwork? 6. How much time did you need to complete the artwork? 7. Was the choice of media/materials the best for that specific work? 8. Were there other options which could have worked better? 9. How permanent and durable or fragile and impermanent is the artwork? 10. What is needed to exhibit the artwork? 10 EDUCATOR’S PROGRESS SHEET FOR GRAPHIC ART LEVEL _____________________________________________ Date of completion for each task Task No. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Name of Learner 1. 2 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 11 Task Description: Recording the Image of the Drawing (s) print(s) LEVEL 4 RECORD SHEET NAME OF LEARNER: Date Task Description Mark Assessment Theme Investigations 1.
