Grade 6

Critical and creative reflection

Module 10

Visual art:

Various artistic forms in our everyday lives

Activity 1:

To identify and classify various artistic forms in our everyday lives

[lo 2.5]

  • In Modules 1 and 2 you came into contact with art elements like form , line , tone nuances , colour and composition .In Module 3 the emphasis is on theme , topic and scale of work of art, at home , in the community and in public places .

STEP 1

As we are surrounded by a variety of art objects, statues and other works, it is important to be able to identify these various visual forms of art.

Complete the following table:

Examples Of Works Of Art In Our Everyday Lives

At home In the community In public places
.................................... ..................................... ...........................................
.................................... ..................................... ...........................................
.................................... ..................................... ...........................................

STEP 2

Study your completed table and circle all the items that can be linked to decoration and then underline all the items that have a SPECIFIC FUNCTION or which can be used for a specific purpose. Some items will meet with both requirements and will therefore be circled as well as underlined.

STEP 3

Choose five of the underlined functional works of art in the three columns. Group them together according to the five themes below (make sure that you choose at least one from each column):

Usual / functional works of art

Theme Works of Art
ADVERTISEMENT / PROMOTION
INFORMATION
LUXURY / COMFORT
ENTERTAINMENT / RELAXATION
PERSONAL USE

STEP 4

Now you must study the scale of the works of art, i.e. the size of the works of art. Make a list of ten works of art, chosen from your first table. Arrange these items from the smallest to the biggest. Number 1 must be the smallest and number 10 the biggest:

List of works of art according to scale

Scale from Small to Big Work of Art
Smallest 1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Biggest 10.
  • Now you must write a paragraph of 60 – 80 words in your learner journal (or on loose pages that you can add after this one) in which you explain why each of the items which you have listed, was made to a specific scale. Look at the link between the work of art and its size.

Activity 2:

To improve or decorate the environment

[lo 2.5]

  • Study illustration A below. Use colour pastels or wax crayons and/or coloured chalk to improve or decorate the environment in illustration B. Use your first table for inspiration.

Assessment

Learning Outcomes(LOs)
LO 2
REFLECTION The learner will be able to reflect critically and creatively on artistic and cultural processes, products and styles in past and present contexts.
Assessment Standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
DANCE
2.1 researches the historical background of dances done by their elders in terms of social or cultural contexts, purpose and unique characteristics;
DRAMA
2.2 finds out about different types of drama in the country and makes connections between some of them in terms of origins and similarities;
MUSIC
2.3 listens to and discusses the use of repetition as an organising principle in African music;
2.4 selects a repertoire of songs that are used in various cultural environments, describes what cultural events they are drawn from, explains what the message of the lyrical content is and what the songs are used for;
VISUAL ARTS
2.5 identifies the main purposes and design features of artworks in the home, the community and public places in terms of theme, subject and scale;

please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
