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.

Effective Starters & Plenaries for Art and Design

Effective Starters & Plenaries for Art and Design

I have created a huge PowerPoint presentation with over 45 starter or plenary activities for your art classes. The activities are all art-related and can be used in KS3 or KS4 art lessons, either as entry tasks, starters, plenaries or exit questions. Sometimes I put the question on the board at the start of the lesson then come back to it at the end. The slides are made up of questions, challenges, thought prompts, image analysis, riddles, true or false competitions, thunks and more. Some are very general so can be used across any class or topic, and some are more specific and related to different art movements - for example, Pop Art or Graffiti. You can use the slides to generate discussion or have students discuss things in groups/pairs etc. I have made them to be as adaptable to your lessons/teaching as possible.

This is a key stage 3 project where students do a polyprint on fabric using printing inks. This is a short 6 week project but could be developed to incorporate embellishments and sewing skills to fabric. I did this with year 8 and it took 6 weeks. Student enjoyed the outcome and it could have been made into a cushion for each student but we made a class fabric wall hanging. (There is a second Powerpoint in a Bundle which has all the pictures used for students to work from - A-Z of nature pictures) Artists used: Angie Mitchell and Ernst Haeckel Resources required Polyprint blocks Printing ink Rollers Tables to roll out on Fabric square per child Paper for test prints Research sheet for drawings and artist research.

Students begin by researching Angie Mitchell and Ernst Haeckel and make up a sheet with these two artists and their drawings. The drawings they do of one of the pictures of the slide pictures of animals and bits of nature from A-Z. Students choose which animal or fish or plant they would like to draw. Students spend time doing a detailed drawing and design a border pattern for this work in black and white. Success criteria of drawings To use fine lines and to capture quality detail To concentrate on negative and positive shapes To develop a border pattern from nature around the drawing To try to layer up your drawing with foreground and background shapes The students drawings are then photo-copied and transferred to the polyprint block. Students use the photocopy to press through onto polyboard. The students are given a square and a strip of polyprintboard . Students first of all experiment printing on paper with their design and border. Students can do a black and white print or do a polyprint print of two colours overlaying their inks. The slide presentation gives you also opportunities for reflection and evaluation of outcome at the end.

Landscapes unit of work - Upper KS2

Landscapes unit of work - Upper KS2

For teachers in Upper KS2, this unit of work (6 sessions initially, but could be extended through giving children more time to experiment with different designs/sketches and media, as well as linking to other subjects such as through creating biographies of the focus artist) focuses on the technicalities behind landscape drawing and painting. Towards the end of the unit, children will design their own landscape drawing and then collage it in the style of contemporary artist, Gordon Cheung (who they will also study). I have linked their final landscape to the Isle of Wight as the class had just been their for PGL, but this could easily be changed to link in to your local area and therefore inspire children more. Some PowerPoints are referred to, but not included here because they are somebody else’s work, however alternative ideas have been given, enabling you to create similar resources. TPs refers to Talk Partners (children have a fixed talk partner for the week to work with when discussing ideas).

Alongside this, pupils learn basic portrait proportion and drawing techniques. I have included levels and success criteria as well as slides for self/peer assessment and growth mindset. Learning objectives are included and differentiation by outcome is most appropriate here. The levels and success criteria slides can me modified for your own use. Plenty of work to cover the first full term. Lovely, creative and colourful, well worth the price. The assessment breakdown can be requested if you want to use my criteria for assessment.
