Large Scale Art
Tip: Plan your project in detail on paper first. Design it to scale, on graphing paper and in pencil so that you can redesign and correct mistakes easily.
Pro Tip: While you're in the planning stages, now is the time to determine whether the size of your tools are adequate for the size of your project. Bigger work means bigger tools, so take inventory and decide if you need to upsize your toolbox with larger brushes, clamps, strong adhesives — whatever your art tool needs might be.
Pro Tip: It helps to know where your piece will ultimately exist once it's finished. If your piece will be displayed indoors, consider whether it will fit through said doors once it is complete. If you are unsure as to where it might be ultimately displayed, then you might consider constructing it in a way that can be dismantled into smaller, easier to move pieces, and then reconstructed inside the space.
