Last week I spent a considerable amount of time making Power Point resources for Applied Art GCSE Woodcarving scheme of work. The artists listed were: Andy Goldsworth; Georgia O’Keefe; Henry Moore; Barbara Hepworth; Isamu Noguchi and Antony Gormley.
I tried to keep the presentations brief (about 8 pages) with a basic chronology of their working practice from the start of their professional training to their current practice or death.
There is a page outlining some of their key artistic influences. These influences can be relating to:
A theme (Thematic) e.g. the body and Antony Gormley
A place (Environmental) e.g. Mexico and Georgia O’Keefe
World events (contextual) e.g. Henry Moore and WWII
People/Movements e.g. Barbara Hepworth and the British modernists
Cultural/Religious e.g. Isamu Noguchi and Buddhism.
There is also a section which suggest “Key Words” and “Materials, Techniques and Technology” to help us understand the Power Point introduction to the artist.
