All levels

Prior Knowledge

Be fairly fluent in English

What Will I learn?

•Learners will be able to develop and evaluate an understanding of the world of Modern art from 1880 onwards by talking and listening and looking at art and artists and making notes in their notebooks for future reference.
•Learners are able to explore and identify why and how art works are made by comparing and contrasting the present with the past, and art movements with other art movements, evaluating the consequences of past events and decisions, and determining the outcomes that were made into art by answering questions during the sessions. E.g. Look at the different ways’ artists represent Conceptual art compared to Post Impressionism etc.
•They are encouraged to learn, analyse and understand art terms and develop and use specialist art vocabulary relating to the artist’s techniques and art work & art movements.
•Learners assess how visual elements contribute to the mood, meaning, tone or beauty of an art work.
•Learners are encouraged to visit galleries/museums and use the internet to research world art from 1880 onwards with optional home art sat each term and they can present these in and display in the classroom and/or on the dedicated secret Facebook page.
•Each term some sessions are devoted to artists who show work in London or online thus enabling as many leaners as possible to attend art exhibitions and see art work in the flesh. Learners encouraged to talk and show samples referring to details and examples of art work seen from their visits.
•Historical, Scientific and Cultural timelines are used throughout the year to show parallels in the life of an artist and the art work.
