The Visual Arts Project Proposal is a printable template which helps students articulate their ‘big idea’ for a major visual arts project, whether it be painting, sculpture, drawing or mixed media.


SKU APROP0820 Categories , Product type , ,


This template takes students through a series of questions to allow them to convey the essence of their project:

  • The main idea or theme
  • Why they want to explore it
  • The medium they’ve selected to work in and why (tickboxes for categories/subcategories of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and other)
  • A brief description of what they envisage the final product to look like
  • Factors they’ll need to consider as they plan

Students can submit the proposal for teacher approval before commencing pre-production. There’s a section for teacher feedback and a tick of approval or ‘back to the drawing board’ if the idea needs to be reworked or fleshed out.


  • 2-page PDF template in two formats – print for handwriting, and a digital version with fillable fields – student and teacher can complete on PC or device


How I use this resource

I have my students book a one-on-one time to conference with me to present their idea. They should be familiar enough with their project that they can talk it through with me without reading straight from the proposal sheet.

You can approve the idea or send them ‘back to the drawing board’ to think through their idea some more before you sign off on it.
