The Gold Arts Award Portfolio for Kristin Buck at Treasure House CIC
Below is all of the evidence for my Gold Arts Award. If you want to skip the evidence you can look at my final projects here:
Unit 1: Part A
My main art form is Photography. I’ve done a lot of photography and film at school in Photography lessons and Media Lessons. Most of my photography was just of the natural world and using natural light. For this project, I learnt how to use the studio and to take staged still life photography in the style of photographers like Irving Penn.
Unit 1: Part B
I completed a two week placement with The Mechanic’s Institute Review, a creative writing magazine and website based at Birkbeck University. Working with one other student, I created a youth takeover of the site and set up a writing competition for under 18s. I mostly did this placement online from my school with one of the managing editors, Melanie Jones, but I also spent a day at Birkbeck learning about copy editing from the other managing editor, Peter Coles.
Unit 1: Part C
In this unit, I completed research into artists and art events. I conducted research into the Irving Penn, I visited the Olafur Eliason exhibition at the Tate Modern, I also visited Footprints Set Design in Peckham.
Unit 1: Part D
This section should have been about how class and money affects the progress of music students in the UK. However, I didn’t have time to complete it because of Covid-19.

For my Leadership Project I helped to create a school Art Magazine
