Year 7 and 8:

A series of practical based tasks which focus on the elements of Art will be set over the next 4 weeks. They are designed to get pupils to think creatively and imaginatively.

Tasks are written in a way that pupils can use whatever materials they have at home. This means that pupils can make a choice about the art equipment they want to use within the guidelines of the task set.

Overview of work

 

  • Pupils are completing a unit of work on the topic of Identity. This was started before lockdown and they were given the option to choose any direction in this topic (cultural Identity, personal Identity, family Identity etc) that they want to follow within the specific tasks set by their teacher.
  • Tasks set by miss Smith and Mrs Evans will differ as both classes are being given slightly different focuses.
  • Pupils were given an A5 sketchbook – If they do not have one please complete work on loose paper, keep it safe and bring it into school once we’re all back.
  • Tasks are designed to help pupils to create a small unit/project through a step-by-step process. Pupils are not expected to know what their ‘final outcome’ will be at the start of the unit, that is the purpose to the step-by-step process of the unit.

 

Additional links and worksheets will be added to google classrooms and Show my homework over the next 4 weeks to help guide pupils through the process.
