Key Stage 1 Art Plan 5 week Unit

Key Stage 1 Art Plan 5 week Unit

This resource is a set of 5 Art lessons based around the theme of the sea, oceans and water for KS1. The key skills that are taught include creating different tones and shades with paint and pencil, using shapes, patterns and lines and experimenting with different materials.There are 4 different artists used as inspiration - Turner, Hokusai, Hockney and Monet, all of whom have painted the sea or water using very different techniques. The children have the opportunity to work alone for 4 lessons and part of a collaborative group project for the final lesson. They have lots of opportunity to choose what materials they work with.The lesson plans are very detailed and include a list of any resources you will need to get out of the cupboard. There are also details of curriculum links and examples of work from my classes. I have included the simple powerpoint I used for the series of lessons, which contains examples of the artists' work around which the lessons are based. I hope you enjoy the lessons! They are great fun!
