Personal Investigation essay guidance - art/photography
ArtAndPhotographyArtAndPhotography

Personal Investigation essay guidance - art/photography

(1)
I wrote this for my A-level students as they needed something to help them write their essays for the personal investigation. It breaks down the essay into different subheadings, each with a guide on how many words to write and then a list of prompt questions to help with writing. There is also a guide to the required bibliography, and a final checklist. This version is written for photography students, but could be quickly altered for art/textiles etc.

Photoshoot planning template with prompt questions

This is a table that I have used with both GCSE and A-level photography students to get them to plan in more detail for photoshoots. Each subtitle has a few further prompts to get students to think in more depth. Great for the new requirement for written work in the GCSE.
GCSE Photography checklist
ArtAndPhotographyArtAndPhotography

GCSE Photography checklist

(1)
This checklist lists all of the tasks that I expect all students to complete for a GCSE Photography project. It is colour coded linked to the AOs, features clear success criteria for each task, and offers a 'going for gold' extension to push the higher ability students. A really good resource for encouraging students to work independently, as well as for reference when structuring their projects.

3D Art and Design: Process and assessment

(0)
This is a document that I’ve put together to clarify for my students what is involved in a project and the process that they will go through when designing and making a product or sculpture on the AQA 3D Art and Design A-level course. I have also broken down the assessment criteria into a series of questions to help them understand the requirements for each assessment objective. Students who had not previously completed an art course and/or who had previously completed DT/engineering found this particularly useful!

GCSE Photography Exam - project overview and student checklist

There are two documents here - two different versions of the same thing, one more detailed than the other - both student friendly. One is an overview of the photography exam project structure, organised by lesson and task. It features brief information about each task, with details on things to consider and 'going for gold' extensions, aimed at the higher end students. The other document is a simplified checklist for students to track the tasks they need to complete for the exam project, encouraging them to work independently and outside of lessons.

Mock GCSE Art Project overviews and checklist

This is a resource that we use with our students as part of a second GCSE project where we do a 'mock exam' style project. Students are given a choice of 3 titles, then encouraged to work more independently, with the use of a checklist. The three topics are: - Nature and Natural Form - Identity - Groups of Objects Each topic is introduced as a page of artists with images, and a list of things that students could focus on, draw, photograph etc. There is then a checklist which applies to all starting points and covers the whole project.

AO1 - How to analyse a photographer

(1)
A clear presentation that encourages students to be analytical to support their marks in AO1 when discussing the work of a photographer. Lots of prompt questions to help them structure their written analysis and to help them take inspiration from the artist. I wrote it for A-level but have also used it with GCSE Photography students to encourage a higher standard of work.

This resource includes all lessons for a short project on lighting inspired initially by Cornelia Parker and Tom Raffield. There are 50 slides, covering an introduction to the project and the artists, mood board and design pages, observational drawing prototyping, presentation and evaluation. It was written as a skills development project for new year 12 students on the AQA 3D Art and Design course, and assessment objectives are referenced throughout. The tasks use primarily paper, wire and card but could be adapted if you wanted to use other materials. There are printable worksheets, flipped learning opportunities and lots of examples of ideas for students to help them along the way. My group engaged with this project really effectively,

This powerpoint was written for my year 11 students who are doing a project on Distortion.

Each slide includes examples of photos and key tips for success!
