Lobster Pots & Rope Book

During this project students broaden their perception of what drawing can be using a variety of media. It is an ideal project to run at the start of a course where students are going to follow an independent path such as GCSE or A level. Students will:

  • Learn to make a simple folded book.
  • Draw with a range of different media.
  • Draw with a range of experimental and traditional drawing techniques.

This download includes:

  • Access to a 16-minute instructional video, which can be used as professional development for yourself or with students.
  • 3 pages of lobster pot and rope images. (As seen in video above).
  • 4 Pages of rope knots. See below.

Please note, this download does not include written instructions as all the instructions are in the video.

Materials required: A2 paper (approx 16.5 x 23.4 inches) However, this book could be made any size. Indian ink, scrap card, ballpoint pens in a variety of colours (each student will need 3 different colours), black chalk pastels (the rectangular type with straight edges work well for this task). Brushes and drawing pencils.

I imagine this would take about 7 lessons to create, or less if students create the detailed traditional drawings as a homework task.

There are many more drawing art lessons on The Arty Teacher website.

Sarah Crowther – The Arty Teacher

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.
