Teaching and Learning Activities for the Visual Arts
This photocopiable visual arts series from art teacher, Leigh Munro, is packed with creative ideas that are designed to excite and inspire students aged 10-13 years.
In two books Art Works focuses on teaching and learning about a range of two- and three-dimensional visual arts. The series contains multiple self-contained units that are prefaced by teacher ideas pages followed by step-by-step student instructions and assessment grids.
- Book A: Contains themed units with a 2-dimensional focus
- Book B: Contains themed units with a 3-dimensional focus
Across all units, students also learn about a number of artists from different times and work in a range of media, including computers. Teacher ideas pages contain background information on the topic and approaches to setting up including materials required, recommendations for useful resources (including websites) and suggestions for starting off. Underpinning all of the units are learning objectives which focus on practical knowledge; communicating and interpreting; developing ideas and understanding the arts in context.
All units are designed to be photocopied and are suitable for both specialist and non-specialist teachers of visual art.
