Good Example and Template

This resource, Seed & Seed Heads Mark Making creates a single page in a sketchbook, but as it takes over 10 lessons to complete and includes a broad range of media and skills, I am describing it as a mini unit of work.  During this mini unit of work, students draw the seeds heads in a broad range of media, with a focus on mark making.  This download includes:

  • A template to trace to create the 9 squares and title on the page.
  • A one-page PDF featuring 9 squares of seeds and seed heads to draw.
  • A one-page PDF which is a good example of this completed task.
  • The good example is also included as a one-page PowerPoint so you can show it on screen.
  • A 4-page written unit of work.

Materials required: Soft Pencils, Fine Liners, Black Ball Point Pens, Crayola, Black Watercolour, Instant Coffee, Dip Pens, Black Ink.  Optional: Ferby’s.  This is a long list!  Feel free to substitute media that you don’t have.*

There are many more units of work and natural forms 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.
