Time Burton research page (KS3)

Time Burton research page (KS3)

A fully planned lesson (planned to last four weeks) looking at the artwork of Tim Burton. The work has been planned for KS3 (year 8) to get them used to working in sketchbooks and researching artists like they would at GCSE. The lesson looks at Burton’s art style, his techniques and some basic information about Tim Burton himself. The planning consists of two drawings, one in lead pencil and one in felt tip pen and water or water colour. As well as presenting their work with images and information, like a GCSE research page. The PowerPoint consists of four do now tasks, starters, two main drawing tasks with graded examples, research page task (layout), evaluation task, extension task, two homeworks and plenaries. Students are expected to complete more independent research on Tim Burton for one of their homeworks, which can then be used to inform their research page and evaluation task.
