If you get your students to create artist research pages, you will want them to avoid some common pitfalls. All my students have this ‘Artists Research Page Do’s and Don’ts’ stuck in the back of their sketchbook. It really does raise attainment! This one-page resources is a simple list of do’s and don’ts. For example, don’t refer to an artist by their first name only, don’t use pictures the size of stamps, do create an even spread of images and text. There are 16 do’s and don’ts and as this is an editable Word document you can edit and update this to suit your own needs.
Tip: The first time you get students to do a research page, get them to read this as a class.
Assessment: Use this list as your assessment criteria. I have printed this on coloured paper and stapled it to their sketchbook page (as their pages are too beautiful to write on!) and ticked or underlined points. What a time-saver!

I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.
I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.
I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
