We have produced a downloadable resource pack relating to the five themes of the ReFrieze project. The pack contains suggested Citizenship discussions and Art & Design activities and featured artists. National Curriculum links for each of these subjects are clearly identified within the packs.
The different sections are as follows:
Your Story explores personal identity and issues affecting teenagers in 2010. Students are given the opportunity to reflect on their own lives and create autobiographical art-pieces using mixed media, collage and drawing.
A snapshot of the UK in 2010
Students are asked to reflect on what changes have taken place in the UK since the original frieze was completed in 1871. They are challenged to create a visual piece reflecting the identity of the Nation, using painting, mixed media and mosaic.
A Vision for Our Nation
A Vision for Our Nation asks the students to consider what the UK should strive for and what our aspirations should be collectively. It centres on the values of the Nation and creates great opportunities for group-working, using collections, sculpture, graphic design and drawing.
The People, The Communities
The People, The Communities gives students the chance to consider and represent our diverse and changing population. As well as looking at the National picture, students are asked to study their local communities and the individuals represented therein. Introduces fashion design, textiles and photography.
Our Legacy asks students to consider how we are impacting future generations with our actions and ideas. Students are asked to consider the function of art and investigate ways of leaving a visual imprint for future generations.
Alternatively these are available as separate packs on the ReFrieze website.
