African Art - John Muafangejo - Fact file and examples of his artwork

African Art - John Muafangejo - Fact file and examples of his artwork

In this resource I have put together a brief fact file of Namibian Artist - John Muafangejo. This resource also inlcudes 5 pages of his most iconic artwork. This resource would be a great starting point for anyone studying woodcut, linocut and etchings, and provide the stimulus to be a great introductory page in a sketchbook. I have used this artwork as a stimulus for a project with my Year 6 class. These images are bold and striking and ALL the children in my Year 6 class achieved their own interpretation of his work. We used black and white acrylic paint and MDF boards and the results were stunning. Enjoy!

Ideal for Key Stage 3 and GCSE Art students. The resource is print friendly and can be given to students as a work book to use in the gallery. 17 pages.

Schools of Art Wordsearch Art & Design Styles Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Schools of Art Wordsearch Art & Design Styles Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Schools of Art'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
