Some draw or paint from direct observation, others […]Read more "GCSE Art Scheme of Work: Landscape & Mark Making"

On the board I showed some work by Van Gogh and questioned the group about how the painting made them feel, how the […]Read more "KS4 Art & Design: Mark Making [Lesson 4]"
I was looking for a modern pointillist artist to use with my KS4 group project in exploring mark making. Although we are working on landscapes, the techniques are still relevant.
