I work in one of the leading independent schools in the country where our latest inspection report achieved the highest level of 'excellent' in all areas. I have previously worked in a school which achieved art school status during my employment.

Even a glossary can look interesting and be creative!

Every sketchbook in my 'outstanding' school has one of these in the back. Over the year your students can add subject specific language. In the lid of the paints add the artists names that you have looked at. There is a space for adjectives which comes in handy as a starter activity if you are looking at a piece or series of art works.

I encourage students to fill in the different words and definitions in lots of bright colours which they enjoy!

Art Literacy Bundle (Including Questioning & Discussion)

Save over 50% on this five resource bundle which features some of my most popular resources: 'Talking About Art' starter activity. This is a placemat which gets your students talking about any artwork using sentence starters. Blooms Taxonomy was used to create this mat and so is great for all learners. The 'Art & Design Glossary' is a simple and easy way to incorporate literacy into your lessons and evidence it for inspection. Blooms Taxonomy For Art has been developed to make questioning subject specific for art. This is great for your handbook, great when planning or just to pick up and glance at when questioning a class. Blooms Taxonomy for Art Question Cards - let your students do the work! Distribute these cards to students and let them come up with their own questions to ask themselves or each other. The 'Writing About Art Literacy mat' encourages students to write a sentence about each of the given categories. An example is also included on the mat. All these resources will help you to easily include and evidence literacy in your art lessons.
