Topic: YOU AS THE GRAFFITI ARTIST


Specific Objectives/Learning Goals:

This lesson plan has been designed to enable Year 7 students to undertake visual arts appreciation focusing on the ideas
and insights the artist is trying to relay and hence understanding the work aesthetically using the language of vision. It
uses a graffiti art program to generate artwork, which opens up the possibility to create quick media testing images,
assisting them in the design development process. The students then review each others works online through the class
edmodo account and bring their interpretation ideas to the next class for discussion

This lesson will cater for multiple intelligences and aims to promote creative higher order thinking, therefore giving all
students an opportunity to engage with the topic.

Specific objectives:

Use digital systems to represent text, image and audio data (ACTDIK024)
Students use https://www.totalgraffiti.com/ to represent text through image and create an art work used for media
testing

Create and communicate information collaboratively online, taking into account social contexts (ACTDIP032)
Students upload their designs on the class edmodo page for collaboration and reflection of ideas

Ideas and design development for art-making (e.g. brainstorm, mind map, annotation/sketches, media testing)
(ACAVAM120)
Students use total graffiti as a platform to create quick, mess free media testing that can generate multiple pieces fast

Personal opinions about their own artwork and the work of others, supported by examples within artwork
(ACAVAR123)
Students are asked to view each others art works and reflect back on this bringing feedback to the next class for
discussion.

-Students have been exposed to previous art
styles before and have knowledge on simple
art techniques such as tone, shading and
colour

-Students are familiar with Banksy and the
street art movement



Catering for Student Diversity


Gifted and talented/early finishes:
Work on multiple works (3+) and upload all of them on edmodo account
Self-reflection of there own work: What are my strong points in this
artwork? What could I improve on? What line work did I use to portray
my new paper heading?

Learning difficulties:
Sit the students with learning difficulties near stronger/talented
students to assist them where necessary
I will move around the classroom when the students are creating their
work, assisting any students that may need more guidance that the
others.

Physical disability: Hearing impairment
All instructions including the objectives are uploaded on the class
edmodo account so the student can read this as reference instead of
listening
I will ensure the student is confident with the instructions before the
activity starts
The prezi is sound free and can be read easy from the projector screen
