Art keywords activity for paired work (starter or plenary)
Use the resource to test your pupils knowledge on keywords and techniques.

One half of the pair has the keyword, the other has the example. Mix up the pairs and let pupils choose one, then they have a limited amount of time to find their partner. Pupils must work co-operatively to discuss which technique matches the correct keyword.

Good for getting pupils into small groups or pairs and also tests their knowledge of techniques. I have used as a quick plenary or starter.

Keywords included are:
Tone, Linear, Continuous Line, Mark-Making, Pattern, Positive & Negative
