Compositions Bundle.

Compositions Bundle.

Three resources to teach and mark compositions. Save over 40% with this bundle. 1) Do your students struggle when creating compositions? This worksheet is designed to support students when they are creating compositions by making suggestions of things to consider. It asks them to think about different shapes, sizes, or even a series. It ends with ideas for annotation and a useful word bank. This is a Word document so you can tweek it to your needs should you wish. This worksheet puts you in control as you can give your class guidelines based on this resource. e.g. pick at least three of the shapes, make sure one idea is a series, make sure you cover all the annotation points. 2) Don't you find that when you are marking compositions that you are writing the same thing again and again? These stickers address that problem! This set of stickers includes each type of error students make both as a target and as a Question. (I know that in some schools like mine, you have to mark with a question!) Targets and Questions include: annotation, identifying students best design, colour, contrast/tone, links to artists, quality of drawing, and using the space on the page well. 3) Every child should receive this presentation in KS3 or 4. It covers what composition is and looks at: Balance Contrast Focus Movement Pattern Rhythm Scale and Proportion Unity There is a script within the presentation which you should print off before presenting. The presentation is animated. There are 10 slides but because of the animation students will look at 24 works of art. www.TheArtyTeacher.com

Kandinsky topic - KS2

This resource would be useful for anyone wanting to introduce children to Wassily Kandinsky with the aim of them creating their own Kandinsky-style painting. I have attached the medium term plan, the slides and resources for a 5 week topic of work. The lessons show the children how to use different painting techniques, how to blend colours and how to create an interesting composition using 2D shapes.

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!

St. George and the Dragon: Black card stained glass paper cut out project with tissue paper

St. George and the Dragon: Black card stained glass paper cut out project with tissue paper

There are two powerpoints - one focuses on the St. George images and the other on Marc Chagall. In the project students use their imagination and to draw dragons and St. George scene and to tell a story about this. Students look at the Stained Glass artist Marc Chagall and then make up their St. George story on paper to transfer to black paper. Students will need to use a stanley knife and safety working with blades is imperative for this project. Students need to have very simple designs and stylise their drawings into basic shapes. WEEKLY Plan Two lessons weekly 7 weeks to 1/2To look at examples of St George and the Dragon and to draw out one’s own St. George and Dragon picture. 1/2. To look at examples of Stained Glass windows and look at the artist Marc Chagall. 3/4 To simplify the designs of St. George and the Dragon into thick lines and shapes to transfer onto black paper with chalk. 5 /6 To trace designs onto black paper shapes and begin to cut the negative shapes around the lines. To simplify these lines one can take the students to a computer room and do a basic symmetry pattern and lay this over their drawing and students begin to simplify the shapes into geometric forms. 7 / 8.- To make up a sheet of tissue paper on plastic paper to put behind the black paper cut out. Tear or cut the tissue paper into shapes at random and just lay this down on plastic with PVA glue. When this is dry the tissue paper will peel off the plastic. 11 / 12 – To continue to draw into black paper and put together. 13 – Evaluation of project To design a picture of St. George and the dragon’ on paper using resources in the first powerpoint. To refine the details of the designs into simple outlines-Teachers could photocopy and enlarge details to help students. To look at the Stained Glass artist Marc Chagall (second powerpoint) and to think how they could use his style in their work To transfer designs to black paper and to cut the negative shapes around the lines using the stanley knife. To make a sheet of coloured paper on a plastic sheet using PVA glue and tissue paper.
