Learning Report/Reflective Essay...
As part of your assessment for Semester 2 you will be expected to submit a piece of written work much like you did in Semester 1. Go back and review your portfolio of work from this semester and reflect on your progression. Make notes of any insights you have during this process of reflection or how your work compares/contrasts to the work of other artists you have been studying this semester.

This time there isn't a specific 'essay question' as you will be expected to submit a 1500 word Learning Report. 

Learning Report
  • This should be at least 1500 words
  • Discuss your learning progression throughout the whole of this year
  • Include reference and discussion of the work of at least one artist you admire/have been influenced by, in relation to your own work.
Take this opportunity to reflect on your work by reviewing your portfolio and making notes as to what you will write about. What artists have inspired you this year? How does your work differ from theirs? Are their similarities? Differences? You should also think about incorporating images of your own work and the work of another artist/artists to enhance/illustrate your points.

When reviewing your portfolio make notes about your feelings, anxieties, errors and weaknesses that you see in your own work, as well as strengths and successes and how your work has progressed over the course of this year and how you expect to develop in the future.

Remember don’t simply write descriptively as many of you did last time. Make sure you review this guide to reflective writing

See Module Guide for further details of submission elements.
