Choose a subject that is interesting to you. For example, if you are interested in graphic design, focus on it in your essay. If you are not sure of what to write about, try searching art and design essay topics online and choose the one you like most.
Look for sample papers on the topic. If you want to write about a particular movie, look for a film analysis example featuring it. Using this tip, you will be able to get some ideas and add more depth to your writing.
Find relevant scholarly sources. You can search Google Scholar or your school’s library for high-quality articles and books on the subject. Instead of merely citing the information from sources, try to offer some critique. Are the views shared by the author supported by other scholars? Do you agree with their evaluation and why?
Include a personal response. Many forms of art are subject to personal interpretation, and some tutors want their students’ essays to be expressive. This means that you should share your views on the topic and explain why you think the way you do. Doing so will help you to show your understanding of the topic and earn you some extra marks.
Hopefully, these tips will help you to earn an A on your art and design essays! You can explore our site for free essay samples and topics.
