GCSE Art & Design sketchbook example

(2)
Photographs of an A grade GCSE Art & Design sketchbook put together in a Powerpoint presentation. Students find it useful as an exemplar and can be used to refer to specific pages at different moments in a project (e.g. mind mapping, planning, recording, evaluating...). I chose this book as it is quite a clear example and not too long. It is not a perfect sketchbook, but shows an achievable standard and some interesting ideas.

Art & Design exam advice - week by week

The sheet gives week by week advice on what they should be doing in order to arrive at the exam day ready! Students can use the sheet to support independent study and to tick off as they complete tasks. It is also a useful way of communicating the expected progress students should be making to parents... This sheet could also be easily adapted for A level students if needed. A quick an easy sheet to photocopy and pop in sketchbooks to get young artists off to an enthusiastic start with their exam. I have uploaded a Word version so you can edit it (this one is for AQA exam board and mentions in week 1 that students should choose their question) or the more 'designed' version which is a PDF (printable as an A3 poster).
Beginning and / or End project planning booklet
amimamim

Beginning and / or End project planning booklet

(0)
This page can be printed at A3 size then folded down into a small booklet which gives page by page instructions for an exam project on the Beginning and/or End theme. The sheet is designed for students who struggle to work completely independently and need more guidance on how to structure their project. The theme is narrowed to Seasons and then Spring and then takes natural forms such as flowers and seedpods as the focus. This enables students to produce high quality observational drawing and photography. Two artists researches are specified: Angie Lewin and Beatriz Milhazes with a choice of the third (suggestions are given: William Morris, Margaret Mee, Catherine Bertola and Karl Blossfeldt). Students are instructed to work in a range of media and then need to develop their own outcome from their investigations. If they have followed the steps they will end up with a coherent project, covering all of the assessment objectives. I have found that students like the balance of independence and structure that the book gives them and helps avoid wasted time where they are looking at random ideas without a strong thread. Instructions for folding the zine from the printed page are also given.

Ernst Haeckel artist research and analysis worksheet

(1)
A two page resource (can be photocopied back to back and laminated for repeated use) on the German scientist and artist Ernst Haeckel. Can be used as a cover lesson during a relevant project (science in art, natural forms, zooming-in, symmetry, abstraction...), an extension activity, or as a whole class task. Students are asked to read the information about the artist then answer questions, create a mind-map of their ideas of what Haeckel's forms remind them of, then create their own response based on his 'Art Forms in Nature' prints. Designed to be easy to deploy and requires no additional resources. A fantastic resource to have on hand and relevant to so many projects!

Abstract composition scheme of work: A3 oil pastel with artist links

This scheme of work was designed originally for year 9, and aims to embed some art and design key concepts: colour, composition, and abstraction. There are contextual links throughout with key artists being: Beatriz Milhazes, Piet Mondrian, Georgia O'Keeffe, Henri Matisse and Antoni Gaudi. The starting point for students abstract compositions is natural forms (fruit and vegetables) and there is a handout provided that students work from initially. Each lesson has a powerpoint and any handouts needed are included in the presentation - saving you lots of preparation time!! There are seven lessons in all, and the scheme can easily be adapted to fit the time frame you have available. Students enjoy this scheme of work and respond well to the learning involved.
