Assessment Objective 3: Recording ideas and observations

Assessment Objective 3 is about recording your ideas, observations and insights, which can be in visual, written and other forms. You should work from a range of experiences and stimulus materials, as each of these could lead you to different ways of developing your ideas. You should reflect upon your work, and consider what you have achieved at each stage and what you will do next.

Recording ideas

When you begin to explore a theme or subject in your work you need to record your first impressions. This can be done by:

  • making drawings, sketches, jottings, photographs or experiments with different media
  • collecting images from sources such as galleries, the internet or books, and then using these to develop your own ideas

You should organise these initial recordings into a 'mind map' of images and words, or you could sequence them into the pages in your sketchbook.

Checklist

When recording ideas have you:

  • made use of drawings, sketches, jottings, photographs and experiments with different media?
  • collected images from a variety of sources?
  • used primary and secondary sources to inform your ideas?
  • organised your initial recordings into a journal or presented them on sheets of mounted studies?
