RENE MAGRITTE - SURREALIST ARTIST - COMPLETE UNIT OF WORK

RENE MAGRITTE - SURREALIST ARTIST - COMPLETE UNIT OF WORK

This complete unit of work explores the life and work of Rene Magritte; a Belgium born Surrealist painter. As the pupils examine a range of his work they will learn more about the Surrealist movement. To further deepen their learning pupils are expected to respond on a personal level to his work using the vocabulary of the visual arts to express their observations. During the practical response, pupils will develop their artistic skills and processes using a variety of media to communicate meaning and intent. The unit of work contains an illustrated Power point presentation that is useful for whole class discussions relating to the ideals behind this movement. A chronology of Magritte’s life that includes points of interest to bring greater understanding of the man as an artist. There is also an array of creative tasks that focus on selected works of art for pupils to respond to in their own unique way. This unit of work is easily adapted to suit the needs of individual teachers. It can be covered in-depth over half a term or dipped-into as required. The Surrealist movement originally arose in response to the written word/poetry and as such Magritte’s work is a brilliant way to inspire creative/descriptive writing. The work produced in response to the chosen paintings [art or writing] is always remarkable and as unique as each pupil. All illustrations used have been tagged with Creative Commons licenses.

Visual Arts Investigation Winter Scenes

Visual Arts Investigation Winter Scenes

This lesson is based on one activity from a three day creative arts workshop I designed to ground a study of the science of seasons and solstices in the creative process. It presents three paintings of winter scenes to the students and asks them to explore them in small groups, referring to the elements of art. This activity places the student in the audience role; a curriculum requirement. This is designed for Stage 3 and 4 students. Critical thinking is required in both the role of critic, and in the extension activity, in the role of artist. This lesson is designed for a 1 hour block but could be extended over 2-3 hours with the extension activity. With some preparation, it is an ideal lesson to leave for a casual relief teacher.
