Analysing and evaluating

Artists and designers often record ideas, observations and insights that come to them as they produce their work. These insights can help them to analyse and evaluate the effectiveness of the work that has been produced.

Being able to analyse a work is an essential part of evaluating it. Recording this evaluation ensures that the creative process is communicated clearly.

Evaluation is an opportunity to:

  • discuss your development and final work
  • help others understand what you were trying to achieve
  • explain your successes and weaknesses
  • demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of art and design

Make sure you use appropriate art and design vocabulary in your evaluation. This will help demonstrate your knowledge and understanding.
