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.

Monday Challenges - ice breakers/ form time activities.

(0)
I started these with my form class a couple of years ago to get students more active and motivated on a Monday morning! Minimal resources required, and guaranteed to get students having fun and working in teams quickly. There are 6 challenges here which will each last around 15 minutes, with a few silly 'Monday Memes' to put on the board as students come in to your classroom.

Art Transition lesson - suitable for SEN

(0)
This PowerPoint was written for a KS3 transition session with a group of SEN students but would be suitable for all groups. The topic is alternative drawing, and there are a range of short drawing tasks that focus on being creative rather than perfect or accurate in order to build confidence.
How to experiment in photography
ArtAndPhotographyArtAndPhotography

How to experiment in photography

(0)
A visual flow diagram for students to use to help them structure their experiments with links to photographers. It clarifies how to use photographers to inspire their experiments, with a focus on supporting them with refining their ideas to get the best marks in AO2. Written for GCSE but I've also used it with A-level, early on in the course with students that are new to the subject.

GCSE Art Student Checklist

This checklist lists everything that we expect a student to complete for a GCSE project, organised by Assessment Objective. Good for encouraging students to work independently, and for pushing them to get work done!
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.

Photoshoot planning template with prompt questions

(0)
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.

Aimed at GCSE Art students, this resource contains information on the artist, a lesson plan/powerpoint that would spread over a couple of lessons, includes literacy opportunities to write about the artist, as well as an A3 worksheet to explore the style and techniques of the artist.

Mock GCSE Art Project overviews and checklist

(0)
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.
Alevel Art/Design: Lighting Project

Alevel Art/Design: Lighting Project

(0)
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,
GCSE project overview - Architecture

GCSE project overview - Architecture

(1)
This has been a really successful scheme of work. Students engaged with it really well, with a variety of painting, printmaking and mixed media work linking to artists such as Ian Murphy and Paul Kenton. We ran a trip to a local English Heritage venue which I'd recommend for photography and drawing - they're generally free if you lead them yourself! The SOW is broken down by week, giving tasks linked to AOs, Skills focus and extensions for HPA.
3D Art and Design: drawing for design
ArtAndPhotographyArtAndPhotography

3D Art and Design: drawing for design

(0)
This powerpoint has been written for the A-level 3D Art and design course, specifically to support non art students and engineering/DT students with their understanding of the art process of looking at primary sources for inspiration. I delivered the lesson at the start of the design process to help students link to primary sources in their observational drawing. Within the powerpoint are a range of visual examples that should help students see how drawing and photographs can be done purposefully to help the design and making process. I found it really clarified students understanding of AO3 (AQA).
AO1 - How to analyse a photographer
ArtAndPhotographyArtAndPhotography

AO1 - How to analyse a photographer

(2)
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.
