Talking About Art


Use the ‘Talking About Art’ placemat as a stimulus when asking your students to talk about art. The attached lesson starter document explains how to use the placemat for a starter activity, where you divide your class into groups and give them time to discuss the sentence starters, and then you ask for feedback.  Starting with the speech bubble above the mouth and working around clockwise, the questions use higher order questioning inspired by Blooms Taxonomy.

I have also provided a blank ‘Talking About Art’ worksheet should you want a written response.

A really useful starter that could be used with any artist or artwork.

Art literacy.
