Visual arts research paper: The extended essay should be written in a clear, correct and formal academic style, appropriate to the subject from which the topic is drawn. Given that the extended essay is a formally written research paper, it should strive to maintain a professional, academic look.
my topic/ approach is: the appropriateness of Picassos use of Reliquary Figure in Nude with raised arms.
To help achieve this, the following formatting is required:
-12-point, readable font (Calibri or Times New Roman)
-double spacing throughout entire Essay
– page numbering – top right corner;
Six required elements of the extended essay
-Body of the essay
-References and bibliography — if MLA “Works Cited” if CSE “References”
Required Title Page
The title page should include only the following information:
-the title of the essay
-the research question
-the subject the essay is registered in (if it is a language essay also state which category it falls into; if a world studies essay also state the theme and the two subjects utilized)
The upper limit is 4,000 words for all extended essays.
Please note: Examiners are instructed not to read or assess any material in excess of the word limit. This means that essays containing more than 4,000 words will be compromised across all assessment criteria.
please note that all essays, regardless of the subject, need to have both a RQ and a title.
moreover, please look over the links and resources I added as I think they would be of great help
