This simple textiles art project is ideal for teaching at KS3 as it is really short but engages students by giving them lots of choice in their work. Students love the bright colours, the different shaped stitches and, of course… the sweet, sugary subject!

This is a super simple but REALLY effective clay project that my students love. I teach this clay coil bowl project to my Year 8 students and their results are lovely – and can take their plates home with them when they’re finished.

After teaching a dry media pattern design project previously, I altered this pattern design scheme of work to focus more on colour theory and develop students’ painting skills. This is the first year I have taught the project this way, and I am so chuffed with the results! Get this full pattern painting project on […]Read more "KS3 Art Project: Painting Patterns"
I designed this GCSE art drypoint etching project with the intention of having students understand the different applications of mark-making drawing techniques, and getting an insight into a simple but effective printing process.

This 3D art project is great because it engages boys, uses minimal materials (mainly just paper and card), introduces new equipment and materials AND it can be really easily adapted. I teach this Design and Build architecture project every year because it is so much fun (and not just for the students 😂 ). Once […]Read more "KS3 Art Project – 3D Design and Build"

I have been teaching these Op Art lessons online via Google Classroom. I have designed this Op […]Read more "KS3 Art – Op Art Home Learning Project"
