I created this painting scheme of work with the aim of engaging more boys in art. The outcomes for the project are less focused on precision and accuracy, but more on expression, emotion and mood. It uses Kandinsky's artwork as a starting point to explore links between music, colour and feelings, then moves on to focus on composition and layout. I really enjoyed teaching this painting project, mainly because I got to play music during the lessons!

I taught this art painting project with 11 - 12 year old students and there are a few different stages: students research an artist (Kandinsky), they create research pages about his work then start experiment painting. First, looking at the use of line, then colours and feelings, then finally composition.
