The Art of Piet Mondrian - WebQuest / Internet Scavenger Hunt & Technology Art Project

The Art of Piet Mondrian - WebQuest / Internet Scavenger Hunt & Technology Art Project

In this lesson, students learn fun facts about Piet Mondrian and his art as they complete a WebQuest (Internet Scavenger Hunt) to answer questions about the topic. Then, they use that knowledge to create an art project of their own, using Mondrian’s style, in Microsoft Paint, 3D Paint, Microsoft PowerPoint or Google Slides. A complete answer key is provided for the WebQuest for easy grading, along with resources for both teachers and students. The student questions are included in both a print version and a digital (editable) version to make it easy for students to complete the lesson digitally or on paper. Also included are tutorial links to assist students with the software for the art project. This lesson was designed for middle school (grades 6-8) but could be used in upper elementary as well. Files included: • Teacher & Student Resources • Fun Facts about Piet Mondrian WebQuest Activity (print and editable digital files included) • Fun Facts about Piet Mondrian WebQuest Answer Key • Creating Art in Mondrian’s Style using a Choice of Software

Annotating Sketchbooks Bundle

Annotating Sketchbooks Bundle

These three resources combine to make an effective annotation toolkit! 1. ANNOTATING SKETCHBOOKS PRESENTATION (18 Slides) An essential presentation for GCSE and A Level which explains and gives excellent examples of how to annotate a sketchbook page. I really saw an improvement in annotation after showing my students this! The presentation includes a SCRIPT which you should print out before presenting by going to File>print>notes page>print. The presentation looks at: ~ The difference between writing and annotation. (Both are fine!) ~ Recording on location ~ Research Pages - what annotation should be included ~ How to annotate working with different media and colours ~ How to annotate development work All the sketchbook pages included are inspirational! 2. SENTENCE STARTERS FOR ANNOTATING SKETCHBOOKS* Support your students when annotating their sketchbooks with these sentence starters. Areas covered include: Artist Research Pages Experimenting with Different Media Content Development Personal Response Reviewing Compositions This resource also includes some good examples of annotation in the black boxes. WRITING ABOUT ART LITERACY MAT* A really fantastic place-mat to support writing about art. Simply ask you students to write a sentence about each of the categories e.g. line, tone, texture etc using the adjectives provided. This has been designed to work with any artwork. An example is also included on the place-mat using a landscape drawing by Cezanne. I always tell students that they don't need to limit themselves to the words on the list, so this provides support for those who need it but also lets other students fly! This could also be used for gallery education.

Stories Told by William Morris and Friends - A Resource To Support Key Stage 2 Literacy

Stories Told by William Morris and Friends - A Resource To Support Key Stage 2 Literacy

Stories Told by William Morris and Friends is a project that uses six art works and designs from William Morris Gallery's collection to support literacy at Key Stage 2. A visit to the Gallery can be built upon to create a half-term unit using the resources downloadable here. The resources consist of: Briefing Notes for teachers and adult helpers to help them talk about the six individual artworks (pictured) in the Gallery. Activity Sheets. These include one page sheets to help pupils explore individual art works in small groups rotating round the gallery spaces. They also include generic Story Frameworks and Scribe Sheets to help adults draw out language and their own ideas for stories from the artworks for further creative writing back at school. Background Information Notes. These provide a lot more contextual information about the stories and the artists and can be used by teachers for preparation or for research by upper Key Stage 2 pupils. Scheme of Work, developed to provide a six week unit of follow-up work linked closely to literacy objectives for Year 5 and 6 with suggestions on adaptations for earlier years. Powerpoint Presentations of the artworks, to support learning in the classroom. All images contained within these documents remain copyright of the William Morris Gallery. As such they may be used for educational purposes but should not be used for any commercial gain.
