The aim of this project is to enable you to generate a range of 2D or 3D work relating to your chosen specialism. This project should be independently led producing a range of work for a subject that interests you, the work you produce should focus on the whole development process including research, experimentation, development and final outcome.

For the FMP you have the opportunity to specialise and write your own project brief. The project will end with the summer show on Thursday 9th June which will be held within the Allen Building. The exhibition will be part of your assessment so should be a consideration throughout the project. You will need to allocate time towards the end of the project to prepare your own exhibition space to ensure your work is presented to the highest standard.

For the FMP project you will be given 3 project briefs with strict deadlines, these will be Research, Development and Exhibition assignments. The separate deadlines are given to help you structure your project, to ensure you make good use of your time, produce detailed and thorough work that meets the assessment criteria on time for the summer exhibition opening.

Throughout the project you will need to evidence all the work you do on WordPress with the category FMP.  For the interim assessment you will be required to plan, structure and deliver a research presentation to a small group, using Powerpoint or Prezi on Thursday 24th March.

Suggested Research (include visits /reading lists / websites etc)


Assessment Guidance: 

Within this project you will produce an exciting, creative piece of artwork based on subject of your choice. As a group we will explore techniques to develop ideas and samples and you will get the opportunity to develop individual ideas which will be presented within your final presentation.
