- To develop analytical skills to respond to a painting
Pupils should be taught to:
- Learn about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work
Before the lesson
Pupils needing extra support: May benefit from focusing on just one or two parts of the painting. Can work with a partner or group when answering questions to support their ideas.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should describe individual sections of the painting, including what people in the painting may be thinking or feeling. Ask them to reflect on their own personal experiences and suggest connections to the piece. As the children to consider any artists or artwork they know and discuss similarities and differences.
