Matisse Scissorhands: Henri, his cut-out phase and French vocabulary

(0)
Henri Matisse was a French artist who used colour dynamically and with passion. This lesson plan concentrates on his last artistic phase, cut-outs. Included in this pack are teacher's notes (background information, classroom activity and homework options), a powerpoint, homework options sheet, French vocabulary activity sheet and lastly a printable example sheet of shapes Matisse used. The cross-curricular themes are French and English. The lesson goes through colours in French and a few basic words that can be seen through Matisse's work. Within the homework options there is an option for an English writing assignment also. Due to copyright laws you will need to copy and paste three google images into the powerpoint. I have specified which cut-outs to use.

On our art journey around the World we stop off in New Zealand to study some traditional Maori Art. This lesson is broad enough for those in KS2 and KS3. We explore the forms, shapes, designs and symbolism of traditional 'Ta-Moko&' masks. We look at the culture and meaning behind them. Using art to stimulate learning of a different culture to our own, students will be learning a little about another history and geography of these people. Many activity ideas at the end and activity sheets for the younger ones.

Inuit Art

(11)
Do you every get bored of teaching the same blue chip names, like Picasso, Matisse and Van Gogh? Yes, these artists are important to know, but there is a whole world of art that children may not have access to. I am doing a five week painting course that will be travelling all over the world, starting here with Inuit Art. Inuit's or otherwise known as Eskimos have a vibrant and colourful style of art that you will never forget once eyes are lain on it. Stylistic with bold colours and black outlines we see Inuit art as inherently one with nature. The kids absolutely love it.
Art and Nature through Land Art

Art and Nature through Land Art

(3)
In exploring Land Art or Earth Art children begin to think about the relationship Art and Nature can have. This resource will help pupils start to think about the Earth, its environment and the endless opportunities to create something beautiful. Using examples of work by Richard Long and Richard Shilling, we expand and explore in more depth the work of Andy Goldsworthy. Through his work we look at Line, Form, Material and shape. The exploration of these artists will give a good foundation for them to go out, explore and create. This resource is aimed toward the upper end of Primary school pupils, however due to the subject matter it can be easily adapted to suit younger years.
