Vortograph Photoshop technique

Vortograph Photoshop technique

Currently working on Architecture with our year 9 so heres a tutorial I did with them and the final outcome was a success. It was challenging but the end product was brilliant. The work is inspired by the photographer Simon Gardiner and used one of my photos as part of the tutorial. Students used the marquee tool to cut selections of the building to create a abstract piece of work along with various other tools on Photoshop. “Vortograph: the first completely abstract kind of photograph, composed of kaleidoscopic repetitions of forms achieved by photographing objects through a triangular arrangement of three mirrors.”

GCSE Experimental Photography - KS4

GCSE Experimental Photography - KS4

This project is to provide GCSE year 9 with basic knowledge on photography and how to use various tools on Adobe Photoshop. Students introduced to a variety of experiences and that explore range of photographic media, techniques and processes. Students will have the opportunity to produce their own photos using a compact and DSLR camera. Students will explore relevant images, artefacts and resources relating to a range of art and to produce contextual pieces of work from their research to show their understanding of artist, photographers and designers. Students will be working independently as well as in groups to help develop their interpersonal skills and sharing ideas. Students would be made aware of the four assessment objectives and marking criteria to ensure they achieve the best possible grades. Students will complete the project and present it digitally on PowerPoint (or in sketchbook) with relevant annotation along with a sketchbook to show their ideas and 3-5 final images. Trial and tested with our year 9 and it was successful. It allowed students to be more confident in using the camera and developed their understanding of photography. Furthermore, students gained basic skills in Photoshop and developed their ICT skills. This includes schemes of work, checklist for students and PowerPoints for each lesson along with Photoshop tutorials. Plenty of contextual studies and it will save you hours of resources. This was our first unit of work with year 9 so if there is any issue then let me know. Thanks and enjoy!

Basic Drawing Skills - Scheme of Work - Knowledge Rich Curriculum

Basic Drawing Skills - Scheme of Work - Knowledge Rich Curriculum

Year 7 - Term 1 - Basic Drawing Skills Scheme of Work / Practice Makes Permanent (Literacy Bank) / Assessment and Feedback Materials This resource has been developed in response to the Knowledge Rich Curriculum advocated by teachers, researchers and administrators who have inspired the Free School Movement. It is an attempt to put into practice a fun and engaging Knowledge Rich Curriculum. Traditionally Art is seen purely as an outlet for creativity and expression. However, there is a danger in classrooms of Art not being taken seriously as an academic subject. Without knowledge as the foundation of everything we do in Art, students will lack the ability to be able to draw or realise their creative ideas or designs. Students will be unable to evaluate, critique or learn from other artists effectively . If you want to know more about this movement then I recommend researching the work of Andrew Old, Tom Bennett, Daisy Cristodoulou, Doug Lemov, Robert Peal, Jonathan Simons, Katherine Birbalsingh or James O’Shaughnessy.
