Course Outline

Term One

Observational drawing

This project will allow the pupils to explore the formal elements (line, shape, tone, form, light, texture etc) through a range of 2D medium.                                                                                 

Term Two

Colour Theory

This project will allow the pupils to explore colour (Primary, Secondary, Tertiary, Tints and tones) through a range of 2D medium.

Term Three

Narrative Art                      

  • To develop skills and knowledge in narrative art and use these to create a composed piece of Greek inspired narrative artwork.

  • To develop skills and knowledge in clay (3D) linked to Greek culture (ancient) to create a clay mask.

  • To explore Greek codes and conventions in Greek mythology.

  • To discover and research historical paintings and sculptures of Greek narrative art, by artists such as Botticelli etc.

  • To extend literacy in art – possibly linking to pupil’s current reading.

  • To understand how to compose a piece of narrative art and visualise a final 3D artwork.

  • Clay skills and how to use this effectively and safely.

  • Evaluate and discuss learning.

  • To develop skills and knowledge in colour theory, completing colour wheel showing Primary, Secondary and Tertiary colours.

  • To explore the use of complementary colours, tints and tones and hot and cold colours, through practical work and/or discussions.

  • To discover and research the codes and conventions of colour theory, through contemporary art.

  • To extend literacy and ICT in art – linking to pupil’s artist research.

  • To understand how to create abstract works using colour and mark making.

  • Evaluate and discuss learning.

  • To develop skills and knowledge in drawn formal elements, completing an observational drawing of a still life object which must show shape, tone and form.

  • To explore the use of formal elements in 2d medium (including pencil, pen and charcoal).

  • To discover and research the codes and conventions of observational drawing.

  • To extend literacy and ICT in art – linking to pupil’s historical research.

  • To understand how to draw observationally, using primary sources and visualise in a final artwork.
