Ofsted good practice example showing how Loughborough University uses individual and exploratory sketchbooks.
The art foundation diploma at Loughborough University has a focus on first-hand drawing and visual notation, and exploration of new ideas, materials and techniques. The sketchbook is seen primarily as a personal visual diary of the students’ thinking and creative processes, with emphasis on thoughtful and critical evaluation rather than a repository of secondary imagery and lengthy description of process.
