Thinking Big

Thinking Big

It's always good to get students to think big and challenge themselves. This lesson asks students to plan and develop ideas for working on a large scale and comes with an odd one out starter to stimulate thinking at the start of the session. The lesson is in the form of 16 page power point which I use to get ideas going for ways in which artists can work big scale and leads into tasks with learning objectives to guide the lesson. This can be used as an intervention lesson or as part of a SOW involving scale from KS3 to KS4 and 5, hitting AO1 2 and 3 nicely.
