Art Progression of Skills

Compiled for our school - these are the progression of skills through the processes of art. Each half term we create focused teaching on one of these processes. Although inevitably some of these objectives will be met in cross curricular opportunities or other subjects. But we don't rely on that and so use this as a guide.
Debate : Form of art or not?Quick View

Debate : Form of art or not?

The classroom debate is a highly useful tool for a teacher. It provides the students with an excellent opportunity to improve their fluency skills and to extend their vocabulary while, at the same time, discussing about complex contemporary issues and developing the students’ critical thinking skills. If organised carefully, classroom debates are something your students will look forward to. This is a debate about graffiti , a controversial topic but very familiar to the students. This is a B1 - C1 level. The teacher should also be aware that the whole preparation takes no less than 4-5 hours and might also reach the 6 hours, depending on the particular class and level. Here you can find the lesson plans for each session (there are 3 in total) and the accompanying worksheets.

Art. Natural Forms

Over 1000 pages of support for GCSE Art. This resource bundle provides a thorough unit of work based on natural forms. Clear, easy to follow instructions will allow the teacher to lead students through a wide range of linked activities spanning drawing, painting, sculpture and much more. Students are also encouraged to explore the work of recognised artists and develop their work through exploration and experimentation. This means that students are being challenged to make decisions and employ a “growth mind-set”, something that is being lost in many schools. The work is purposefully diverse because students have developed ideas in their own original ways. Ideal for use with the AQA and EdExcel specifications, allowing full coverage of the four assessment objectives. Included in this bundle are the following. A thorough unit of study. The study provides lesson by lesson guidance, homework, artist references, a rationale for assessment, health and safety, materials lists, student guidance and more… 22 different image slideshows for inspiration. All slideshows offer high quality images of natural forms. A step by step sketchbook guide with a natural forms theme. An example photographic analysis of a piece of student sculpture based on natural forms. A slideshow of example student work (also provided as the preview file). Over 1000 pages of information!

Activities to strengthen Art skillsQuick View

Activities to strengthen Art skills

This is a resource I have made from activities I have collected and created in order to strengthen Art skills. Every Art activity a student does is marked according to three assessment objectives: A- Analyse and Record, R- Research and Develop, and T- Try and Text Techniques. When work is returned to the student, they can improve on their weakest area (in DIT time) by doing an activity from the document and marking off which one they have completed on their colour chart. There is an excel markbook to go with this resource, which helps you track student progress to the assessment objectives.
