HOW is Art made + WHY is Art made
= IB VISUAL ART
The first step in IB is to be VERY familiar with quite a few artists. You want to look at a range of artists – choose a few up and coming (unknowns), a few good contemporary and some masters. Every project you do should be inspired by (at least) 2-3 artists.
To help you get started, first familiarize yourself with what IB requires of you.
Then, start looking around you. Visit art galleries. Take photos. Browse the internet, instagram, you tube and start thinking about yourself as an artist.
To get started… begin considering……What is important to you? How can you use Art to express your ideas and identity? What do we mean by truth and reality in Art? What are the moral obligations of an artist? What do we expect from Art? How do your ideas relate to world issues? How do you use art in response to world cultures and issues?
“Art is something we do, a verb. Art is an expression of our thoughts, emotions, intuitions, and desires, but it is even more personal than that: it’s about sharing the way we experience the world, which for many is an extension of personality.”Georgia O’Keeffe
