The Netherlands and Belgium in 35 historical maps (1480-2010)

The Netherlands and Belgium in 35 historical maps (1480-2010)

This Historical e-Atlas of The Netherlands & Belgium (116 pages) shows the changing shape of the country through a series of maps made by the most important cartographers of their time. From the earliest known manuscripts and first printed maps to contemporary computer-generated images. When did the country appear on the (world) map for the first time and how did it get its name? The e-Atlas also includes a general introduction to the history of cartography (timeline) and describes how and why maps were/are made. It marks the most important discoveries and advancement in technology of mankind: from inventions as the magnetic compass and the printing press to modern mapping techniques like satellite remote sensing. The e-Atlas is made up of duo pages; the right page displays the map of a given period, the left page contains text describing its creator and other details. It is suitable for presentations in classrooms: teachers can zoom in on maps, compare maps from different periods etc.

Facial Expressions for Drawing

Facial Expressions for Drawing

A set of images of extreme facial expression to use for drawing - images of sculptures featuring the work of Franz Xaver Messerschmidt, Bernini and Rodin. I've used these with year 9 and above - and find that getting students to draw from sculptures offers them a start in seeing where the essential forms are through tonal changes without being distracted by detail - the withdrawal away from the reality of a basic photograph of a face seems to help in achieving more expressive and stronger drawing. The powerpoint contains 22 images of facial expressions in sculptures and links to information. This can form the basis of a set of lessons that lead into their own explorations of facial expression through their own direct observations. The expressions can cause some smiles too.

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.
