Macro Art

Suitable for most age ranges, this very flexible project combines digital photography with the art of observational drawing. It is a great project for getting some quality, expressive drawing work in student’s portfolios at exam stage or for teaching younger students to ‘see’ more closely. A very expressive and open lesson, students are free to express what they see in a variety of styles. I've had great results from this as a topic for less able students or teaching experimentation with materials. I've used it as a GCSE project and in the Primary phase. It's easy, effective and fun!

Me in a Box

This exciting project is a new slant on the traditional 'identity' project used in many school art departments, except this version does not depend on the ability to draw a self portrait, but rather uses found objects and symbolism to create deep, meaningful pieces of art. What's more, the project embeds cross-curricular learning, integrating Religious Education themes on identity with Mathematics of Net Making and construction of 3D shapes. The download contains a full Scheme of Work and four PowerPoint presentations as well as photocopiable NET templates, artist links and student examples to help you. This was one of my favourite projects as a teacher!
