This lesson is an introduction to an Installation Art project where students will be looking at
how site-specific art can disrupt an environment. For this lesson, students will explore stickers
and how stickers are utilised by artists in a variety of ways. They can help convey messages,
ideas and concepts. Students will explore the concept of The Future to provoke thoughtful
and personal imagery.

Explore & Express Ideas
Students will explore the concept of The Future and how this might be translated through
gestures, symbols and other imagery.
Visual Arts Practice
Students will look at working with premade stickers and are going to work with pens/markers,
collage or digital to create their concepts.
Present & Perform
Students will look at how the stickers might be perceived within different context for example, looking at how the general public might view a sticker on a stop sign in comparison to a
sticker being displayed within a art gallery. Looking at context and the impact this has on the
message of the sticker.
Respond & Interpret
Students will look at a video of Yayoi Kusamas work Obliteration Room at the Tate Modern in
London. Through this, we will look at how artworks can be interactive and asks the audience
to enter into a conversation and participate in the art making process.


This lesson aims to:

Get students thinking about how artworks can interact with external spaces
Involve students with the medium of stickers and working with different media
Experiment with the art elements and principles in the creation of an artwork
Explore and use ideas and sources of inspiration from prompting themes
Use the material of stickers and apply technique
Use art terminology to annotate and develop exploratory work


By the end of this lesson, students will have:
