Pathway for Years 5 & 6
Drawing, Sculpture, Graphic Design, Collage, Sketchbooks
That drawing and making have a close relationship.
That drawing can be used to transform a two dimensional surface, which can be manipulated to make a three dimensional object.
That when we transform two dimensional surfaces we can use line, mark making, value, shape, colour, pattern and composition to help us create our artwork.
That we can use methods such as the grid method and looking at negative space to help us draw.
That there is a challenge involved in bringing two dimensions to 3 dimensions which we can solve with a combination of invention and logic.
This pathway contains two choices: 1) working towards a piece of sculpture, or 2) working towards graphic design/packaging.
Both options allow children to explore the idea that drawing as a 2 dimensional activity can be used to transform surfaces which can then be manipulated into a 3 dimensional object.
Along the way, children explore how mark making, line, tonal value, colour, shape, and composition can be used to inform the final piece.
The sculptural project additional includes two methods to help build drawing skills: looking at negative space and grid drawing.
The graphic design packaging project includes typography.

I have explored artists who use their drawing skills to make objects, and I can share my responses to their work, thinking about their intention and outcome.
I can use my sketchbook to record and reflect, collecting the ideas and approaches I like which I see other artists use.
I can use line, mark making, tonal values, colour, shape and composition to make my work interesting.
I can use negative space and the grid method to help me see and draw.
I can explore typography and design lettering which is fit for purpose.
I can transform my drawing into a three dimensional object.
I can share my work with others, and talk about my intention and the outcome. I can listen to their response and take their feedback on board.
I can appreciate the work of my classmates. I can listen to their intentions and share my response to their work.
I can photograph my three dimensional work, thinking about presentation, lighting, focus and composition.
