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 Powerpoint Three from a Scheme of work on developing a clay tile based on the work of Hundertwasser. Students firstly in Powerpoint One learn to draw a sphere pebble and practise their shading techniques. In Powerpoint Two students then study the artist Hundertwasser and design their own tile design looking at the work of and particular way he interprets his subject. Students practise their watercolour techniques and develop an outcome in his style to use for clay. In the powerpoint three there are steps to show how to make a tile relief.

Sphere pebble drawing -tonal value-KS3 making a 3D form part - shading techniques lesson 1

This is a lesson for year 7 who are learning to shade and to create a 3D form. This is the start of a Scheme of work (Powerpoint one) where students draw a pebble and then eventually make a tile in the shape of their pebble and design a relief surface based on Hundertwasser. There are three powerpoints in this unit of work. This is a short example showing different steps to get a 3D sphere form and using tonal values to develop this form. There are exercises on markmaking and how to create a tonal value. There are the main breakdown of what is needed in a sphere in tones: Light, light grey, middle grey, dark grey and black with reflected light. There are examples of showing how to shade in the direction of the form. Learning Objective was: To create a presentation on an A3 sheet of your observation drawing studies showing volume drawing of pebble To learn to draw 3D geometric shapes and firstly practise mark making and a range of tones in media: charcoal. To develop observational drawing techniques. This follows with Powerpoint Two and Three where students then begin to : Present preparatory work on a page and to plan a design for clay tile. Develop painting style like Hundertwasser (study the style of this artist) and use watercolours and understand what is a style in Art. To complete a clay tile and paint design on tile.
