Abstract

Writing for visual arts students remains a current dilemma. Academic essays frequently form assessment requirements in awards that are studio practice based. This series of images illustrates a project created for fine art undergraduates, drawing upon the research-led practice experiences of the academic leaders. The Academic Poster Project regenred a model commonly used in science to accommodate both the individual interests and methods used by visual learners, which in turn become the participating student’s plan for narrating argument, knowledge and criticality. Writing in the visual arts can be difficult territory [...] students (and indeed staff) are often uncomfortable with the role of writing and theory within the subject: it is often seen as separate and unrelated. (Shreeve et al. 1999: 345–57).
