Art teaching resources and ideas

Improve students’ art vocabulary

Lots of my resources focus on getting students to be able to think about and discuss artworks in more depth. Rather than formulaic construction of slightly dry sounding sentences about the artists’ use of line, tone and colour, I’d like to see students provided with the language to speak meaningfully about their responses to images.

One way to boost both students’ confidence and ability to write about art is to provide the vocabulary. With this in mind I’ve produced a poster/handout with a range of words to spice up artist research or enable personal reflections which read in a more exciting way. The download is available from my TES shop or can be directly downloaded from my web-shop for £2 .

Of course the resource is by no means exhaustive. I’ve tried to balance some common words with more exotic examples which might have them reaching for their dictionaries. I hope it will start a conversation about the kinds of words we use to talk about visual art. And maybe make a bridge with the literacy students might have experienced in English lessons in school.
