Basic geometric tonal contrasts: chalk and charcoal and building Surrealist fantasy figure KS3

Students are developing an understanding of tonal values and 3D forms and looking at markmaking, and a range of tones and depth of tones.• Students reflect on what is a shape, and how to turn this into a 3D form and look at ways to do this with some key vocabulary terms.• Develop an understanding of how to use charcoal and chalk.• Students on a planning sheet will need to develop their mark making skills to enable them to shade using tones and students will look at various ways to use line techniques to create tone: stippling, hatching, cross hatching, scumbling, contour hatching. • Students then will look at the lighting of a 3 D form and how the shadow is thrown.• Students will practice a tonal range on a geometric shape.• Students will then work in a group and each student to draw a geometric shape which can be put together into the fantasy figure composition based on the Surrealism Picasso figures. Examples given of the geometric standing figures of Picasso, De Chirico and Desmond Morris.Students follow the powerpoint using chalk and charcoal and explore mark making techniques to start.Then students look at the tonal contrasts and begin to develop a geometric shape.

A cross curricular creative approach to discovering the life cycle of a sunflower

A cross curricular creative approach to discovering the life cycle of a sunflower

Suitable Ages 6 to 8All the resources have been written to engage the child on an imaginative, creative and scientific approach to learning. The finished work can be trimmed along the guidelines and be pasted in an A4 booklet with the minimum of fuss. The Power Points are in A4 size and can be printed out for the worksheets.To get the best from the resources, it is hoped that it would all start with the planting of a sunflower. This is echoed in the little musical which follows a class as it sows the seed. (Words etc. are already on a PowerPoint and no specialist knowledge is necessary) The observation section is for each season. RE and data is for Autumn. Literacy for Spring. The rest of the sheets can be done in any order.

The sunflower project. Cross curricular child centred worksheets . Section one Art and design

There are 10 different curricular areas in the Sunflower Project. The one here concentrates on the mixing of colours and the making of a paper mosaic. The sheets can be trimmed easily by the child so that they can be pasted into an A4 booklet. The presentation is in A4 size, so the worksheets can be printed directly from the PowerPoint. I have included a free song from the musical “The Sunflowers” which could be a starting point.The sunflower Project starts with the sowing of the sunflower seed and follows the observation through until Harvest. Each resource covers a curriculum area. The assumption is that natural science knowledge is absorbed through these various activities.
