Visual curriculum road map pathway for Art and design

(0)
For Art department heads and Art department leads: an example of a visual curriculum road map/pathway for an Art and Design department. OFSTED love it as a visual resource for staff, students and visitors to quickly see the path of the curriculum and how it fits together and builds from one project to another. Use it as a template but make it your own including your own department’s schemes of learning. At my own department we have printed a copy to A1 for each classroom and for the corridor in the department.** If you found this resource useful, please leave a positive review :) Thanks**

Draine13Draine13

Abstract Art project - Picasso, Mondrian, Cezanne

(0)
A 2D Abstract Art project that would take between 4 and 6 lessons and could even be the basis of a much longer project based on the work of Pablo Picasso, Piet Mondrian, and Paul Cezanne. Students create a number of drawings of teapots and still life, then they spend time changing the shapes, forms, and colours, and add pattern to turn those initial drawings into abstract Art. Students are encouraged to abstract the shapes etc. as much as they wish and it is reinforced that there isn’t a wrong answer when it comes to Abstract Art. This project could be used to teach KS3 students or KS4 students. If you find this resource useful, please leave a positive review :)

Art and Design Department Whole Curriculum Overview

(0)
Our whole curriculum overview for years 7 -13, praised by OFSTED, comprehensively covering a wide range of skills with each year group and building on them in each subsequent year. This is an example of what you could do with your own department in terms of curriculum provision. It is also an example of the sort of document that you could refer to in any meeting with an OFSTED inspector and could easily be tweaked to contain your own current provision. The last column was particularly praised where each unit of work at KS3 is clearly linked to GCSE and A Level specifications and marking criteria.
