One of the reasons why I decided to take IB art is because it’s 70% writing and 30% studio. At first that disappointed me because I enjoy making art much more than studying, but the 70% is research on a topic of our choice. We keep a journal, filled with doodles and sketches and anything we please that relates to our topic. I decided to research the history of art therapy, how different methods developed, the people who developed them. I’m actually excited about this class, even though I know it’s going to be a lot of work.
