KS3 Art and Design – The New Curriculum

Pupils demonstrate the needs of the New Secondary Curriculum In an art and design lesson based on the requirements of the new secondary curriculum, pupils at The Charter School in Dulwich explore themes of locality and identity by creating their own readymades. The aim of the class is to encourage the students to be creative, solve problems and take risks. Subject leader in art and design Sophie Leach introduces the idea of readymades by asking her pupils to research and give a brief presentation on four well-known artists who work with readymades. In groups, pupils create their own readymade sculptures from objects they’ve either brought from home or found in the classroom. Students then work with text to help describe the sculptures they’ve produced. Finally the text is animated by the pupils and superimposed on their work. Each of the sculptures says something about themselves or their community.
