Transcript of Year 8 Introduction

Welcome back, year 8!
Let's build on those skills!
What will we be doing this term?

Year 8 Art
Extending and developing skills.
Where shall we start?
What's next?
Today's challenge,
Y dask heddiw.
Next / nesaf?
Now back to the first page!
We will be learning how to use a wider range of materials, and more challenging techniques.

We will be investigating how other artists interpret a theme.

We will be trying to work in their style, and work out the ideas behind the work.

We will be developing our own ideas for projects, based on our studies of other artists.
(Extension challenge)
How many times have you been asked to stop doodling on your books?

Those days are over, folks!
Structured, medatative, purposeful doodling!
Start by measuring a 2cm border right around the
second page of your sketchbook, like so.
Divide the rectangle with a swirl, or a series of arcs, like so.
Choose appropriate support material from the Helpdesk, or log into this padlet for additional support material:


Fill in each section of your rectangle with a different pattern, like so.
Lightly sketch your chosen letterform.
Make sure it touches the border several times.
We are looking to create NEGATIVE SPACES>
'Tangling' is said to:
Increase dexterity, (help you draw better, improving your Making skills)
Reduce stress,
Improve concentration, (Thinking skills)

Plus, it's really good fun, there are no right or wrong methods, it's all about you finding your personal style.(A bit like Art then!)
Let's have a go!
Pair up, and produce a collaborative drawing, by extending the 2x2cm image on the worksheet provided. This will help you to develop your imaginative drawing skills, (Making) and also your Communication and Working Together Key Skills.
Discuss your ideas as you progress.
Chris Ofili
One of Britain's most successful living artists, Chris won the prestigeous TURNER PRIZE in 1998.
His paintings are recognisable by the intense colour and patterns used.
Chris Ofili, The Upper Room, Tate Britain, 2007.
Different artistic processes call for different ways of working. These are some of Chris Ofili's prints, which he did in response to his visit to North Wales.
Use a cutting mat underneath the page, and cut carefully.
But before we start...
How many of you think that you can't draw?
Learning Objectives
To learn that there are many different ways of drawing.
To learn about pattern formation.
To combine line and tone for effect.
(What a good one looks like.)
Place your work in the appropriate zone.
Identify pieces of work that have met each individual Success Criterion.
We will start next lesson with a peer assessment, based on your comments.
