Powerpoint showing several photos of Roman shields that I made leading into an activity where children design their own Roman shield based on certain criteria.
The children went on to design their own Roman Shields and then made then with cardboard and painted them.
Perfect for giving them ideas!
List of art techniques for students to try within their work.
When I used this I got the students to select which techniques they wanted to try and which ones they could self study. I then planned skills workshops with smaller groups based on their choices.
This scheme of work is designed to get students thinking about mixed media rather than just presenting photographs. It links with the AO2- refinement of ideas and encourages students to explore mixed media methods of refining ideas.
When I taught this, I incorporated is as a mini project within a larger scheme to develop a wider range of experimentation. The other part of the scheme focused on computer editing and manipulation so the two worked well together to produce a varied body of experiments.
Included to download is:
1)Scheme of work. Week by week plan including homework tasks with resource list and outcome list. Each stage is also given a series of higher order thinking questions to use with students at this stage of the scheme of work to develop their HOT skills.
2) Project powerpoint and student notes sheet
3) Stitching/ Textiles in photography image inspiration powerpoint. This can be printed/ edited to suit. It contains lots of contemporary artists.
4) Project tutorial sheets to fill out when you have 1-2-1 discussions with the students about their ideas. This allows you to track their progress to their target grades and give them individual weekly tasks if they need it.
