Introduction
Children will be shown a picture of the Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai. . They will observe then record their answers to the following questions. What narrative does the piece of art have? When and where do you think the artwork is set? How do you think the art was made? What do you think about the piece of art? Justify your opinion!

Students will share observations in pairs/pairs (Think/Pair/Pair Strategy). Teacher will use random selector to build up an overview of the students thoughts. Students will group read a brief history of the artist and the methodology behind the art work (Wood Block printing). Discuss difficulties and possible problems with using such a method.

Activities
1. Block Printing Making stamp (Potato)

2. Observation and reflection 3. Wave Representation Line Drawing 4. Wave Representation Water colours 5. Observation and reflection Block Printing- Making a stamp (Potato) Students create 2 block prints out of a potato (see separate worksheet for methodology and student support). When the stamps are made the students then use them to create a personal pattern on art paper. They can utilise other tool s to assist with their printing to complete their art work. Observation and Reflection Students use a teacher produced outline to assist with a close viewing of another students artwork as well as a personal reflection of the processes involved and their own end product. Wave Representation Line Drawing Students view a presentation of waves ocean, coastal, wave (wind) topography. Discuss elements contained within each photograph key lines, tonal regions. Students select an image and recreate key lines and highlight through shading differing tonal areas using A4 art paper. Repeat with other photographs. Observational drawings are secured within their creative arts exercise books. Wave Representation Water Colours

Students select one image (or may choose to use their imagination) and using A3 art paper sketch out the key lines found within it. The students use water colours to initially colour the sketch. After the painting has dried the teach will demonstrate using sponges etc how the differing tonal areas can be blended together to create a smoother transition. Key lines are then outlined to accentuate areas of demarcation. Observation and Reflection Students use a teacher produced outline to assist with a close viewing of another students artwork as well as a personal reflection of the processes involved and their own end product. Assessment: The following criteria shall be used when observing a piece of art work, (Waves + Block Prints) as well as when viewing their personal reflections on their own work (Waves + Block Prints) and the work of others (Waves + Block Prints)
