Sample Pages from International Baccalaureate Investigative Work Books 2009-2011
Boyana Buyuklieva 1
During my two-year course in IB Visual Art I was required to plan and explore ideas for studio pieces in investigative workbooks (IWBs). By the end of my high school studies, I had finished four books, each with about a hundred pagres filled with sketches, watercolours and notes on diverse projects. These projects met different fates; however, the best were featured in an art exhibition hosted in a space associated with the gallery â€˜Industrialna 11â€™. The exhibition was part of my external assessment in visual art. Some of the criteria for the IWBs were personal involvement in the work and clarity of ideas. This is why explanatory notes often accompany my sketches.
Sample pages in landscape format will be featured in Part II.
