Useful links for IB Studio Art students:

For ALL IB Studio Art Students:

BE SURE TO CHECK the "LINKS" page on this web site for good links to local and worldwide art shows, Museums, galleries. You are required by the IBO to go out and see art in your own community! Document any art shows you go to in your Research Workbook. Get out and enjoy the Arts in your community! There is a lot going on in Houston. Read the Arts section of the local newspapers to find out what's happening around you.

Grove Art Online is the most comprehensive and authoritative online resource for all research in the history of the visual arts. You must have a Houston Public Library Card number to access this database. All IB Studio Art students should be using books for most of your research. Internet research does not provide the depth that IB is looking for. Apply for a library card this semester if you do not have one!

First Studio Project Themes-
Year 1 studentsYour first studio project should relate to you RWB work. Choose to do something small, so you can complete it. Students should be deciding on a theme or direction that they want to explore more fully with a studio project.

Year 2 students Re-read your RWB if you need and reconnect with your "creative path". Look for the connections that you may have missed last year. Start narrowing down your focus as well.

Last year and over the summer, you should have spent time trying many different techniques and looking at many different styles of art. Start narrowing down your focus and looking for connections in your work. You will want to start trying to gain some depth in your work both in your understanding of what you've been working on and in the quality of the techniques you are using.

Focus on quality and depth now and keep track of the time between now and your examination. Push yourself hard this semester to complete studio work!
