Art Textiles: Artist Maurizio Anzeri

(3)
Art Textiles: This is a fantastic artist for a KS3 or GCSE lesson. Maurizio Anzeri stitches into old photographs. During the lesson, I printed a range of famous expressive portraits black and white onto card. Students then hand stitched with thick embroidery thread into the images. The colour of the thread contrasted against the black and white background. They were then tasked with presenting this work into their sketchbooks accompanied by an artist research page. This worksheet helped them develop their use of analysis when analysing his work. I will dig out my student examples and add them to this resource along with my presentation. Free resource but please leave a review :)

KS3 Art Cover Lesson: Design a shield for Cardiff Castle

(0)
A great resource if you need a quick cover lesson for Art at KS3. The power-point is only basic but it can be further developed. The aim of the lesson is for students to design a shield to be hung at Cardiff Castle. They have a ‘live’ fake brief whereby their shield needs to represent Welsh Culture and Identity. I created the shield on photoshop. There are x3 versions for the students to select from and I got these printed onto A4 or A3 cartridge. For a cover lesson you may just want to print it on normal paper. At KS3 students already have a welsh culture and identity project so I have attached the visual aids which support students. They also look at a range of illustrators such as Quinton Blake etc. Students use fine liners and colouring pencils to create their illustrations.

KS3 DT Textiles Design Cover Lesson

(0)
This is a one off cover lesson for KS3 DT Textiles aimed at Year 8 or 9. Please note that our students are allowed to use their phones to conduct research during lessons, which they will use to support questions 1-9. Students are tasked with designing a football kit for the world cup 2022 in Qatar (design a male/female kit). Lesson Objectives: • To be able to conduct a piece of research about a major event. • To be able to identify ‘care label’ instructions and recommend appropriate ones for an item of clothing. • To develop a sporting kit and explain all decisions made. There is also a very simple power-point which shows the Qatar logo in colour (resource printed in black/white to save money). As well as some basic information on care labels etc. I will update and jazz up the powerpoint when I get time and I will update this when it is done. Possible extension tasks could be to then design the shorts, socks a drawstring kit bag etc. Or an extension sheet on care labels?

WJEC Textile Design Core Theory Booklet 2.1.1A

(0)
This is still a working document. Due to changes and the new specification I couldn’t find any resources specifically for delivering the new theory content. I have put together this booklet for Textile Design which addresses 2.1.1 A The Impact of New and Emerging Technologies. Some resources I kindly found on TES for free and slotted them in. I delivered this booklet throughout one half term. Students responded well to the lessons and I created some mini mock exam papers (available on TES) which I used to test their knowledge and understanding. I have tested the students every half term and analysed their progress over the year. I have an accompanying power-point which I will also upload, it isn’t complete yet. Again this will be adapted next year now I have had a chance of running through this unit of work and delivering the content. I have begun uploading V2 of the power-point which has my starters, plenaries, home learning and mini challenges on it. keep checking back as I like to put in all on one power-point rather than separate power-points. Feel free to use and adapt. Just leave a review :)

Apron Design - Cover Lesson - Textiles

(0)
A great visual resource to support a simple design task for a double cover lesson. The task can be completed on the double sided word document which is also attached. There are some research questions on the front to get the students thinking about ideas. *please note our students are allowed to use their phones for research tasks. Some questions may not work without access to the Internet, so you may want to amend it. On the front there is a simple apron template for them to draw their design into. As an extension students could annotate their design with how it could be manufactured. Or they could go on to design an accompanying oven glove or tea towel? This task is aimed at Year 7 textiles, however it can be used for a RM or food lesson.

Quiz - Terms and Language

(0)
This quiz can be a quick starter, mini or plenary activity for Year 9 or Year 10. It can be done on a scrap piece of paper whereby the students just answer A,B,C or more formally where it is written up and printed for them to complete. Students can then self/peer assess. The quiz is linked to requirement of the National Curriculum KS3 in Art and Design. The quiz is specifically designed at addressing the section which deals with understanding, evaluating and analysing creative artworks using language and terms of art, craft and design. Helping students understand the language of art at KS3 will be very beneficial to GCSE and A level. It will not only enable them to talk confidently about their own work and the techniques and materials they have used, but will also allow them to critically evaluate the work of other artists using appropriate terminology. This ‘vocabulary of art’ will grow and develop over time, as students learn about new and unfamiliar media and techniques, practice applying them to their own work and recognise structures and techniques in the art they encounter in their studies. The wider and more proficient their vocabulary in this area, the better-equipped they will be to annotate sketchbooks, critique their own work and that of others and, ultimately, talk with confidence about their inspirations and opinions of art work.
