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.

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!
