Visual Arts Investigation Winter Scenes

Visual Arts Investigation Winter Scenes

This lesson is based on one activity from a three day creative arts workshop I designed to ground a study of the science of seasons and solstices in the creative process. It presents three paintings of winter scenes to the students and asks them to explore them in small groups, referring to the elements of art. This activity places the student in the audience role; a curriculum requirement. This is designed for Stage 3 and 4 students. Critical thinking is required in both the role of critic, and in the extension activity, in the role of artist. This lesson is designed for a 1 hour block but could be extended over 2-3 hours with the extension activity. With some preparation, it is an ideal lesson to leave for a casual relief teacher.

Leaf Colour Similes in a Picture - Yrs2-3

Autumn leaves can be as red as juicy cherries or poisonous berries, but your children might think up completely different similes to write and colour round on the leaf. There are other colours to find comparisons for, too, and children will enjoy turning the sheet around to write along the differently angled leaves. There’s a line down the middle for description as well, and some creepy-crawlies to bring the picture alive. Older children can use the sheet as a starting point for extended similes and independent description or free-style verse.

Sphere pebble drawing -tonal value-KS3 making a 3D form part - shading techniques lesson 1

Sphere pebble drawing -tonal value-KS3 making a 3D form part - shading techniques lesson 1

This is a lesson for year 7 who are learning to shade and to create a 3D form. This is the start of a Scheme of work (Powerpoint one) where students draw a pebble and then eventually make a tile in the shape of their pebble and design a relief surface based on Hundertwasser. There are three powerpoints in this unit of work. This is a short example showing different steps to get a 3D sphere form and using tonal values to develop this form. There are exercises on markmaking and how to create a tonal value. There are the main breakdown of what is needed in a sphere in tones: Light, light grey, middle grey, dark grey and black with reflected light. There are examples of showing how to shade in the direction of the form. Learning Objective was: To create a presentation on an A3 sheet of your observation drawing studies showing volume drawing of pebble To learn to draw 3D geometric shapes and firstly practise mark making and a range of tones in media: charcoal. To develop observational drawing techniques. This follows with Powerpoint Two and Three where students then begin to : Present preparatory work on a page and to plan a design for clay tile. Develop painting style like Hundertwasser (study the style of this artist) and use watercolours and understand what is a style in Art. To complete a clay tile and paint design on tile.

Craftivism: Climate Coalition Heart Badge

Craftivism: Climate Coalition Heart Badge

Award winning activist Sarah Corbett founded the Craftivist Collective in 2009 to create a community and resources that use craft as a tool for effective and gentle activism. A lifelong campaigner, Sarah became doubtful of traditional activism methods and wondered if we couldn’t use craft to protest in a gentler, more beautiful way. Sarah says: “Politicians and businesses take note when we stand up for what we believe: craftivism gifts for influential people can encourage them to be the change they wish to see in the world. The time and thought that goes into craftivism pieces shows genuine care and commitment. Handmade, unusual campaigns using craft attract media attention, give people who are nervous of activism the chance to join in and intrigue passers-by.

Polyprint project A-Z nature Angie Mitchell Ernst Haeckel- KS3 class fabric wall hanging

This is a key stage 3 project where students do a polyprint on fabric using printing inks. This is a short 6 week project but could be developed to incorporate embellishments and sewing skills to fabric. I did this with year 8 and it took 6 weeks. Student enjoyed the outcome and it could have been made into a cushion for each student but we made a class fabric wall hanging. (There is a second Powerpoint in a Bundle which has all the pictures used for students to work from - A-Z of nature pictures) Artists used: Angie Mitchell and Ernst Haeckel Resources required Polyprint blocks Printing ink Rollers Tables to roll out on Fabric square per child Paper for test prints Research sheet for drawings and artist research. Project schedule 6 weeks The resources for the students to work from. Each student chooses what they would like to draw. The steps to take while making the print and examples of student’s outcome. Students begin by researching Angie Mitchell and Ernst Haeckel and make up a sheet with these two artists and their drawings. The drawings they do of one of the pictures of the slide pictures of animals and bits of nature from A-Z. Students choose which animal or fish or plant they would like to draw. Students spend time doing a detailed drawing and design a border pattern for this work in black and white. Success criteria of drawings To use fine lines and to capture quality detail To concentrate on negative and positive shapes To develop a border pattern from nature around the drawing To try to layer up your drawing with foreground and background shapes The students drawings are then photo-copied and transferred to the polyprint block. Students use the photocopy to press through onto polyboard. The students are given a square and a strip of polyprintboard . Students first of all experiment printing on paper with their design and border. Students can do a black and white print or do a polyprint print of two colours overlaying their inks. The slide presentation gives you also opportunities for reflection and evaluation of outcome at the end. I have presented my artists in my book I have compared the works of 2 nature artists I have written a short paragraph on the style of artists I have a careful line drawing of my subject I have created my own artwork based on my research of subject colour I have a plan for my print design and have written about relief printing I have tested working with polyprints Student outcome is a wall-hanging and we sewed all the students outcomes together to make a fabric collage of squares.

Aboriginal Art - KS2

Aboriginal Art - KS2

This was a mini topic that I did with a Year 5/6 class but it would work throughout Key Stage 2. It spanned two afternoon sessions and could easily be lengthened to create more of a topic. Pupils discover the key features of Aboriginal art and then go on to explore and record their own ideas before producing a final Aboriginal-style piece. Plenty of opportunity is given to evaluate their own and others work. The resource includes: Teaching plans for two lessons PowerPoint presentation (15 slides) Simple pupil planning sheet Aboriginal symbols reference sheet The topic provides good coverage of the 2013 National Curriculum for Art and Design (links are highlighted in bold on the planning). Planning and resource sheets are Word documents and fully editable. Makes for a lovely display at the end!
