A cross-curricular transition project

Created by Alex Ashton

What was the school trying to achieve?

Year 7 groups come into the school from a wide range of primary schools and from different localities. The Art Department wished to develop a scheme of learning for the Year 7 groups, which encouraged pupils to use a range of familiar skills, exploring creative writing, drama and drawing in response to an image of a sculpture or painting from the past. 

Writing formed the basis of a narrative suggested by an image, which was then acted out, photographed using still shots and developed into a comic strip using a combination of Adobe Photoshop, painting and drawing skills and Windows Moviemaker.
