KS3 Art Mod-roc relief sculpture single or group project: Louise Nevelson study

(0)
This is the final part of a series of Still-life lessons where students do drawings in different techniques and then make a mod-roc outcome. In this powerpoint the students go to a computer room and do a presentation on the artist LOUISE NEVELSON and then make a mod-roc outcome. Steps are showing how to make the mod-roc relief and criteria for success with this medium. Students then evaluate their mod-roc outcome by doing a tonal drawing of this and reflect on the outcome Computer room research: Louise Nevelson - students write and answer the questions and resource information on this artist. After making the mod-roc students evaluate their mod-roc outcome and do a drawing of your outcome and as a group discuss how they will as a group present their own work like Louise Nevelson. Learning Objectives: To explore developing a relief surface of an area of my still -life drawing and develop this in mod roc technique To build a mod –roc outcome looking at relief techniques To in a group build your Modroc into a standing tower with the rest of the group. Do a study of the artist Louise Nevelson and present her work by doing an artist study of her work. Complete the project by doing an evaluation of their mod-roc relief sculpture and do a pencil drawing of this

Surfaces: Theme GCSE. Observational/Artists/Techniques Assessment objectives for Coursework

(0)
This is a GCSE coursework project on a theme called ‘Surfaces’ giving you loads of ideas to develop with your students. It deals with developing ideas to gain confidence with different media and to develop sketchbook skills. It is about the process of developing the Examboard Assessment Objectives AO1- Develop ideas from artists and AO2 Exploring different media for coursework. It gives a set of observational photographs to work from for Assessment Objective 3 - AO3. It gives you different artists to look at to gather resources on and students will be able to use these as artist studies and begin to explore these artists techniques and do studies in their book. This if for Assessment Objective 1 and students can gain ideas on ways to develop their skills in techniques through these artists and in so doing ‘Develop ideas’. There are further sets of techniques for Assessment Objective 2 and one can explore, experiment with ideas for developing ‘creativity’ in your classroom. That is, exploring a number of different media and showing how one can take risks with the media in order to create an interesting effect. There are slides giving you a set of techniques to use - explaining how to use media in creative ways. These techiques link with the list of artists given on slides to start with. The experimental techniques are: =white paint printing, =wax and scratch, =distressing surfaces, =dripping paint, scraping paint, =using sgrafitto, =cardboard collaging =layering digital manipulations with collage =using fabric and sewing into surfaces. Emphasis here is that students should play and take risks and experiment with different materials and begin to layer and be able to draw on different surfaces. It is a fun set of techniques at GCSE and/or A-level with students using their own resource material and developing their confidence and fluency with making creative experiments. Students can develop their own responses using the techniques. There are questions so that students can write a final evaluation. After this set of work students should be confident and independent enough to find their own photographs and to develop their own idea for a final piece for Assessment Objective 4.

Art Sphere pebble drawing -tonal value-KS3 making a 3D form part - shading techniques lesson 1

(0)
This is a lesson for year 7 who are learning to shade and to create a 3D form. This is the start of a Scheme of work (Powerpoint one) where students draw a pebble and then eventually make a tile in the shape of their pebble and design a relief surface based on Hundertwasser. There are three powerpoints on Tes in a bundle linked to this unit of work or you can use it as a drawing exercise to learn to shade 3D forms. This is a short example showing different steps to get a 3D sphere form and using tonal values to develop this form. There are exercises on markmaking and how to create a tonal value. There are the main breakdown of what is needed in a sphere in tones: Light, light grey, middle grey, dark grey and black with reflected light. There are examples of showing how to shade in the direction of the form. Learning Objective was: To create a presentation on an A3 sheet of your observation drawing studies showing volume drawing of pebble To learn to draw 3D geometric shapes and firstly practise mark making and a range of tones in media: charcoal. To develop observational drawing techniques. This follows with Powerpoint Two and Three where students then begin to : Present preparatory work on a page and to plan a design for clay tile. Develop painting style like Hundertwasser (study the style of this artist) and use watercolours and understand what is a style in Art. To complete a clay tile and paint design on tile.

This is a key stage 3 project where students do a polyprint on fabric using printing inks. This is a short 6 week project but could be developed to incorporate embellishments and sewing skills to fabric. I did this with year 8 and it took 6 weeks. Student enjoyed the outcome and it could have been made into a cushion for each student but we made a class fabric wall hanging. (There is a second Powerpoint in a Bundle which has all the pictures used for students to work from - A-Z of nature pictures) Artists used: Angie Mitchell and Ernst Haeckel Resources required Polyprint blocks Printing ink Rollers Tables to roll out on Fabric square per child Paper for test prints Research sheet for drawings and artist research. Project schedule 6 weeks The resources for the students to work from. Each student chooses what they would like to draw. The steps to take while making the print and examples of student’s outcome. Students begin by researching Angie Mitchell and Ernst Haeckel and make up a sheet with these two artists and their drawings. The drawings they do of one of the pictures of the slide pictures of animals and bits of nature from A-Z. Students choose which animal or fish or plant they would like to draw. Students spend time doing a detailed drawing and design a border pattern for this work in black and white. Success criteria of drawings To use fine lines and to capture quality detail To concentrate on negative and positive shapes To develop a border pattern from nature around the drawing To try to layer up your drawing with foreground and background shapes The students drawings are then photo-copied and transferred to the polyprint block. Students use the photocopy to press through onto polyboard. The students are given a square and a strip of polyprintboard . Students first of all experiment printing on paper with their design and border. Students can do a black and white print or do a polyprint print of two colours overlaying their inks. The slide presentation gives you also opportunities for reflection and evaluation of outcome at the end. I have presented my artists in my book I have compared the works of 2 nature artists I have written a short paragraph on the style of artists I have a careful line drawing of my subject I have created my own artwork based on my research of subject colour I have a plan for my print design and have written about relief printing I have tested working with polyprints Student outcome is a wall-hanging and we sewed all the students outcomes together to make a fabric collage of squares.

A powerpoint outlining some tasks for a Key Stage 3 project on Tim Burton. In this project there are a number of skills, pencil drawingwith pen work, chalk and charcoal drawing on black paper, making a black and white silhouette cut out, collaging harcoal drawing onto bottle and painting bottle, further developing a character on a bottle and making a wool paper character. This also has a few quizzes and student examples of work to support the tasks. Starting with presenting a title page for Tim Burton and copying some of his scenes by practising pencil tone and mark making. Layering pencil and black pen in drawing when copying Burton’s work Photocopy examples for students to work from to print off. Then developing a cut out in black paper looking at the strange, Gothic type black and white silhouettes of some of his scenes and making a page on his settings using black paper and cut-outs. The slides give a number of the silhouette type scenes for students to use for inspiration. Further developing a character drawing and students are to look at the number of different slides and these could be printed off for students and letting them develop their own character. Some of the You tube film clips are linked on the slides as well. Students draw out the character and then colour this in. Tim Burton’s scenes are often dark and atmospheric and this is an ideal opportunity to practise drawing with white chalk, charcoal or black soft pastel on black sugar paper and to do a drawing of one of his black and white characters. There are some examples to use to copy from to support the students learning. This black and white scene can further be photocopied and collaged onto a bottle. There is also an extension task to make a head on a wine bottle in paper-mache and lots of inspirational examples of student work Another fun task is to play with wool and paper and to make a rolled animal using newspaper in rolls and then wrapping wool around this and to bend into shape. This can further be embellished by adding bits and bobs like buttons, braid and other decorative details to develop a character type animal which has been inspired by Burton. There are a few quizzes and homework tasks as well.

KS3 Landscape Surrealism , Desmond Morris, Joan Micro, Jean Debuffet -fantasy black pen drawing

(1)
A project for KS3 possible Year 8 looking at Surrealism and the ‘psycho-automatism’ of the artists. Students develop a FANTASY LANDSCAPE for their own paintings out of ink blobs dropped onto their paper and out of random scribbles. Students learn to use these abstract shapes creatively in a composition and are able to thus learn how to shade with paint from light to dark to create a 3D effect of form. The emphasis is on getting students to understand what is chiaro=scuro through the light and dark modelling of abstract shapes. The abstract shapes help them understand that there is no wrong and helps them focus on getting the 3D modelling right. The students need to make a wash for a background with watercolour - using perhaps a sponge. The emphasis is on creating a sense of space with a horizon line and students have to compose their blob/scribble shapes in this infinite space to create a sense of depth on a flat surface. Students need to repeat the shapes and arrange them in different sizes. Students also need to create a sense of interest in the painting. Their surreal shapes are repeated and they are able to change the scale of their forms to develop their fantasy landscape. The second task is to do a black and white pen drawing of their painting, this develops mark-making skills and patterning. This is also a technical exercise where students have to then transform their painting into a black and white pen rendering. This powerpoint has examples of student’s work which helps to support the development of these activities.
