JMW Turner Art Work:
Step One.  using the interactive whiteboard the class looked at and analysed the compositional rules of a piece of Victorian art work: "The lLovers" by Albert Grimshaw Step Two. The children the inserted scanned images of JMW Turner's later paintings into Publisher and having found the simple compositional rules, annotated their chosen painting.

Step Three.  the children then used frames to choose an interesting view of the school demonstrating the three simple rules of composition.  They found it a radical idea to move the church or a tree to suit the composition - "This is art, not photography!"

 

Step Four.  We then went to the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool to look at the art there.  One of the things we did was to find other artists' work showing the same rules of composition.  The children had 15-20 minutes for their sketches.

Step Five.  Before we went to Liverpool we had looked at some photographs of the places we would be visiting taken from vantage points that demonstrated our three simple rules of composition.

 

Step Six.  The children had 15-20 minutes to draw their own views of Liverpool making sure the views kept to the compositional rules.

 

   

Step Seven.  Working in groups of three or four the children produced a piece of 3d art work encapsulating the essence of Liverpool  (They had looked at some modern 3d art work in the Walker Art Gallery.)
