Hundertwasser, step by step

Hundertwasser, step by step

This unit of work was another massive success for my 13-14 year old students in which everyone produced highly competent artworks and really enjoyed the straightforward process. Even those who normally struggled with drawing were in their comfort zone here as Hundertwasser has his philosophy of "embracing your mistakes"! The three artworks will probably be completed in about 8 hours of art lessons, more or less depending on the students. We made a lovely display at the end which we called A Hundertwasser Extravaganza - much admired!

Design & Make a Board Game

Design & Make a Board Game

I've done this Design Technology project a few times now and it's always a winner - I've never known a class that wasn't absorbed by this so I'm really happy to be offering it to you. Students work in pairs (they can work individually if they wish). I've included the power point which details each step so the class can look at it together at the start of each session. I've also included a checklist so students can make sure they haven't forgotten anything along with a basic, student-friendly assessment sheet. I hope you have fun with it!

Matisse Scissorhands: Henri, his cut-out phase and French vocabulary

Matisse Scissorhands: Henri, his cut-out phase and French vocabulary

Henri Matisse was a French artist who used colour dynamically and with passion. This lesson plan concentrates on his last artistic phase, cut-outs. Included in this pack are teacher's notes (background information, classroom activity and homework options), a powerpoint, homework options sheet, French vocabulary activity sheet and lastly a printable example sheet of shapes Matisse used. The cross-curricular themes are French and English. The lesson goes through colours in French and a few basic words that can be seen through Matisse's work. Within the homework options there is an option for an English writing assignment also. Due to copyright laws you will need to copy and paste three google images into the powerpoint. I have specified which cut-outs to use.

Blooms Questioning in Art

Blooms Questioning in Art

A great resource to utilise questioning in art. Add your own questions to the palette. The learners should throw an object of your choosing (I use a suction ball or a paper ball) at one of the six colours. This will move the PowerPoint onto a question at varying levels of difficultly depending on the colour paint selected. A simple but effective starter or plenary.
