Year Twelve Tasks

Year 12 IB Artists :

To help you build upon all of your ongoing portrait  work and to gain a clear understanding of the entire IB Art process, you will be using some of the online resources that I have been developing for Triple A Learning.

The two main units are available for you to download




We shall refer to them in class and look at at a lot of the linked material. However, your work may well develop in ways that are beyond what is described in the project units...
