We talk about it a little less often, but here is a resource to discover to support the teaching and learning of visual arts at all levels: the Visual Arts School site.
French site Visual Arts School is a very relevant interactive platform for teachers and students from kindergarten to high school who want to work in visual and plastic arts. Here is an overview of this site.
This first allows you to acquire elementary but essential knowledge related to the field of the arts, such as types of color, tools, paintings, artists, artistic trends and more.
This site also offers practical guides to practice various techniques ranging from painting to gouache or watercolor, through drawing in lead or ink, engraving, weaving, cutting and many others. .
Learning activities are also offered and combine the techniques, materials, artists and trends described in other sections of the site. These activities vary according to the age of the pupils, the level of difficulty and the objective of the learning situation, the materials to be used as well as the duration. The teacher can therefore select the activity according to all these parameters.
Grouped under major themes such as animals, nature, letters, geometry and many others, the learning activities also allow students to combine knowledge related to the arts. For example, they can practice the gouache tones while interiorizing the new realism practiced by Niki de Saint-Phalle, or even approach rhythm from pop art by Andy Warhol. Several photos and descriptions support these activities, thus becoming a source of inspiration and information, both for students and teachers.
