Week beginning: 31st January 2023
Module Launch: Creative Research Methods Module Launch
Learning Plan (ART723)
I intend to showcase an A1 research poster displaying my findings regarding the environmental issue, Deforestation. Alongside this I intend to create and develop a thesis and possibly a series of prints or photographic works about forests and the threats they face regarding deforestation within the UK. , again similar to the previous module I will be Exploring themes of nature and landscape in the process as areas of interest. (I plan to react creatively to my findings and to be informed by my research in regards to what I create and develop)
I will accomplish these tasks using various methods. Using both practical and theoretical knowledge to progress. Research INTO the subject using critical studies of practices, historical studies, and past collections etc. Research THROUGH performing the acts of crafting as processes, developing ideas, works, experimentation. ACTION RESEARCH: Testing ideas, peer group discussions, exhibitions, practice led research. I will also be conducting field work throughout this module to inform my research and rate of study. Research FOR, collecting source materials and acquiring techniques and skills to produce outcomes. (Gathering both primary and secondary research and attending workshops).
I aim to demonstrate my development and progression through the presence of an online blog/WordPress. And visual progression is to be stored within sketchbooks and workbooks throughout the year as evidence. These will be coherent and available for referencing as and where necessary. I will also produce a thesis/reflective review alongside my online and visual documentations.
Methods of working: Studio work, printmaking workshops, research visits, trips to galleries and exhibitions, creative/critical writing, location drawing, fieldtrips, sketchbook development, WordPress, (Blog updates)
Outcomes: An A1 Research Poster, Thesis and series of prints or photographic works about forests and the threats they face regarding deforestation and climate change.
Investigation & Development: through process and experimentation.
Critical analysis & Reflection through peer discussions and sketchbook development.
Evaluation, critical thinking, theoretical knowledge: through reflective review.
