The Brothers Grimm Art project - Literacy and Art

The Brothers Grimm Art project - Literacy and Art

This project is designed to include research into the historical background of a Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Students will then look at current news articles to help modernise the fairy tale of choice. The project includes artist analysis and annotation in line with the GCSE Art AQA specification to ensure that lower years start to understand how to annotate their work. It also includes illustrating their modernised fairy tale. Students have thoroughly enjoyed the project and really engage with it. Those that enjoy writing can write their own fairy tale, others can simply bullet point or mind map their ideas as it is an art project after all. This can easily be adapted into an English lesson with less focus on the drawing - but you have the drawing support to make sure that the students produce quality illustrations.

BLUE Art Activities KS2: Art Day

BLUE Art Activities KS2: Art Day

This package includes a lesson plan and a wealth of images and templates to carry out 4 different art activities. We spent the full day focusing on art from different artists such as Picasso Monet Romero Britto and many more. The learning objective is: How do I create different tones of one colour using different media, exploring shape and pattern? Success Criteria: I can discuss the work of artists. I can mix paint to create different shades of blue. I can keep the colours clean by using a clean brush to mix. I can make an observational drawing I can combine pastel colours to create an illusion of colours mixing. I can create a repeating pattern using tone to add depth. Children will create 4 different art pieces using many different techniques all based around our theme of the colour blue.
