[teacherartexchange] IB Studio Art Research guidelines

---------

From: Gabrielle Bliss (Gabrielle.Bliss_at_TeacherArtExchange)
Date: Thu Sep 02 2010 - 17:13:48 PDT


Does anyone happen to have research guidelines for the IB studio art investigation
workbooks? I did it last year with my pre-ib students and I want to rework what I did.

Thanks so much,

> Hello Fran,
> I am not sure if I can help you but I will try to share with you my
> past experience.
> Living and working in Athens, I had to make my own sketch books as for
> many years there weren't any in the market to buy. It is only the last
> 5-10 years that one can find decent sketchbooks at decent prices.
> What I will describe here is more of the artistic sketchbook /
> portfolio, that usually comes in A0 or A1 or A2 sizes, made by thick
> papers and has a rough hand made binding in one side.Front and back
> cover are not essential to this but you can add it using harder paper
> So, first think is to decide what kind of work your students will be
> doing. Sketching, aquarelles, working with coloured inks, oil pastels,
> dry pastels, pensils, charcoals, what?
> Once you decide this, then a visit to a wholesale shop that deals only
> with paper. In Greece there are many shops like this and if you
> need a
> large quantity then it is best if you go directly to a paper factory.
> There is no doubt, you can do this via internet, but I usually prefer
> to take a visit and see the variety of materials they have, instead of
> choosing through a catalogue via the internet. This way I always get
> new ideas!
> Following you decide about the size and you ask them to cut it. All
> factories have special facilities for cutting. Ask them also to give
> you the left overs from cutting. In Greece paper comes in large sizes
> so when you cut it there are always left overs. These can be very
> handy for collage, quick exercises, and many other uses. I always find
> it very handy and in Greece they give it for free sometimes.
> Binding with sewing is my favourite. You can ask your students to make
> large holes with a perforate or with a bodkin, and by using thick
> needles they can sew the pages together either using plastic strings,
> or waxed leather strings or whatever they can think, that is strong
> enough to support the sketch book. Keep in mind that binding together
> the pages will use some 2 - 5 cm for the side of the paper, so don't
> forget to add this area to the total size of your page. This way you
> will get the actual working area in the exact dimensions that you
> wish. Some shops / factories have the possibility to insert a slight
> cutting at the side to the paper so that you can detach it easily.
> I hope that this will be of some assistance to you.
> Kind regards
