Impressionist Art Scheme of Work
This scheme of work introduces students to the style of art known as Impressionism. The lesson workshops are each based on a different work of art by a well known Impressionist artist including Monet, Renoir, Sisley, Degas, Cezanne and Pissarro. It enables the students to develop such drama forms as thought tapping, role on the wall, creating and maintaining a character, hot seating, slow motion, monologue, thought aloud, dramatic pause, developing a character and narration. Throughout the scheme, imagery, lighting and observations of people are used to help develop character, plot and relationships. Through practical workshops and their own independent learning students gain an insight into their own thoughts and feelings about life and relationships and how these develop with time and age.
