A great resource to get students thinking about the deeper meaning of Banksy’s work which leads to a mono-print technique. The power point visually demonstrates the correct printing technique for a smooth teaching delivery.
This powerpoint explains the basics of a simple mono-printing process. It demonstrates best practice and the correct method or printing - the resource also outlines differentiated images to use when working with a mixed ability group. Always use scrap paper to blot 4 times after ink rolling to ensure a pristine clean background.
Students are taught how to draw out the enlarged butterfly wing using a simple 2x2 grid method before the application of pastels. Visual exemplars differentiate the correct technique and the blending process. This resource also comes with the butterfly wing image pre-gridded. Pastel application work best on off white paper.
One of the most successful project homeworks I have devised. A wide range of differentiated tasks suitable for all students to engage and participate. Great outcomes every time! The powerpoint explains the project and provides endless exemplar ideas.
Students explore the distorted style of Picasso by using geometric shapes and abstract features to create a composition. Students then use oil pastel gradients to define segments of the portrait using blending techniques demonstrated on the powerpoint.
Using contemporary celebrity portraits, students use a range of tissue paper and coloured card to build a mixed media surface before working paint and pastels over the top. Celebrity templates provided - to create additional templates - copy a portrait image from google and move over to microsoft word and simply adjust the picture settings.
