Scheme of work - composition, (the secret formula to make a great composition)

Scheme of work - composition, (the secret formula to make a great composition)

This scheme of work takes students through stages in making a successful composition Key areas covered are observation drawing skills, key terminology, rules of composition, critical referencing – contextual studies, development of ideas in range of media and approach and realisation of outcomes. I've used this with classes from year 8 to post 16, the idea of the secret formula for how to make a composition goes down really well and gives the students a tangible set of rues that they can continue to apply in painting in as they tackle other projects. The set of lessons can be delivered to fill a half term, and this version always worked best in the Autumn through using natural forms and colours in Autumn.

Identity project: digital photography, selfies, Chila Burman and mono printing also a group drawing.

Identity project: digital photography, selfies, Chila Burman and mono printing also a group drawing.

There are three tasks in this project which lead to outcomes.1. A large class montage of photographs of each student.This is a project using digital photography (selfies) of your class and building a montage of all your pupils. Using Chila Burman as an inspiration begin to collage on a black and white photograph using felt tips, magazine cut outs, patterns and text to create a self-identity portrait. This project builds an understanding of an artist like Chila who amalgamates two cultures: Asian and British and there are examples of her work and student examples of outcome. There is a sheet on Chila Burman to hand out to students.There are also opportunities for students to do a photoshoot and to develop their own personal identity.Techniques used in the project are digital photography and Monoprinting skills. Students use their black and white photograph which they then draw into and then students do a mono-print which they then collage into and develop into the bright, media, pattern outcome like Chila Burman. There are two portrait outcomes. 2 Photographs of personal things and series of photos and also making drawings on computer using a simple Paint package.Students take photographs of their favourite things, try to make a series of things they have at home and to montage this in the style of Chila Burman. Chila loves to show a rich colourful arrangement of personal things that reflect her own identity and students need to set up their own still-life of objects and to photograph this. Students then take pictures of something that they have a series of and try to make a set of objects and put this into a composition. 3 Drawing of a large figure and to collage and do pattern work in the body shape. In this project students work in groups and outline their body shapes on a big piece of paper and then using magazines, sequins, patterns and paint and drawings students then collage into the body shape. Students can use their patterns they made on Paint to cut up and to collage in their body shapes.Students begin to question/explore their own identity, their favourite things, what they like, who they listen to, how they see themselves and try to bring this together in firstly their portrait work, but later get to work in a group exploring their own identity.

Activities to strengthen Art skills

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.

ANNOTATING SKETCHBOOKS PRESENTATIONAn essential presentation for GCSE and A Level which explains and gives excellent examples of how to annotate a sketchbook page. I really saw an improvement in annotation after showing my students this!The presentation includes a SCRIPT which you should print out before presenting by going to File>print>notes page>print.The presentation looks at:~ Where AQA mentions vocabulary in the specification and where it mentions 'written communitation' in the assessment objectives grid. (Delete this slide if you're not AQA!)~ The difference between writing and annotation. (Both are fine!)~ Recording on location~ Research Pages - what annotation should be included~ How to annotate working with different media and colours~ How to annotate development workAll the sketchbook pages included are inspirational!2. SENTENCE STARTERS FOR ANNOTATING SKETCHBOOKSSupport your students when annotating their sketchbooks with these sentence starters. Areas covered include:Artist Research PagesExperimenting with Different MediaContentDevelopmentPersonal ResponseReviewing CompositionsThis resource also includes some good examples of annotation in the black boxes.WRITING ABOUT ART LITERACY MATA really fantastic place-mat to support writing about art. Simply ask you students to write a sentence about each of the categories e.g. line, tone, texture etc using the adjectives provided. This has been designed to work with any artwork. An example is also included on the place-mat using Klimt's 'The Kiss'.I always tell students that they don't need to limit themselves to the words on the list, so this provides support for those who need it but also lets other students fly!This could also be used for gallery education.
