When I return to school in September my Year 11 class will be working on their mock exam preparation. The theme that they have got this year is ‘Collections’. So to help them begin their investigations I have put together a list of contemporary artists, most of these where sourced via Pinterest and pinned to my board Art – Collections GCSE ideas. I have grouped the artists under loose headings to help pupils when they are deciding which artists to look up and investigate.
I will hopefully put up some of their responses to these artists in September for you to see!
Here is the link to the list of artists handout: Collections Theme Artists
Teaching a creative and visual subject I wanted to try and make my planning much more visual. I have put together a folder for each year which contains the schemes of learning/ work for the entire school year.
Inside the folder is the standard written version which contains the National Curriculum links and a breakdown of the lessons etc. But after this I have created pages which have each task/ lesson at the top and then below a set of columns where I can print out and stick down relevant images I find on the internet and most importantly all my pins from my Pinterest boards.
I am also planning to add at the back of the folder images of pupil’s work as a record of the work actually produced.
