      Good Morning Carmel – Many thanks for contacting AccessArt. Please let us know more about what aspect of assessment you need help on: Do you want guidelines on how to assess an individual piece of work and how to offer constructive feedback to pupils? Or broader guidelines on assement and feeback in general? Many thanks – Sheila (AccessArt)

    I need help in finding something related to the theme fragile I wanted to find artists that focus on fragility when it comes to life and nature

        Hi Ally, by chance I have just read an interview with the artist Emma Stibbons RA, who travelled to the Arctic and made work about the landscape. She describes how she made drawings ‘incorporating found materials like volcanic ash and geothermal mud….I want to create a sense of fragility in the fabric of my work and for that to act as a metaphor for the subjects I depict. Both the materials I use and the icy landscapes I draw are temporary’. If you click on this link https://www.royalacademy.org.uk/article/10-minutes-with-emma-stibbon-ra there is a brief interview with her and also a 4 min video where she talks about the importance of observational drawing in her work and also shows pages from two of her sketchbooks – the drawings are beautiful, – it’s very inspiring!
        Also, I don’t know whether you might want to have a quick look at Andy Goldsworthy’s work to see if that fits your brief. He’s an artist that makes works in the landscape using materials he finds on site. There are some wonderful sculptures/drawings he’s made from ice, snow, sticks, stones, leaves etc – fragile and transient. Hope that helps!
