Memorandum

Activity 1 (individual / group work)

SUBCULTURES

  • After the reading assignment learners must answer the following questions individually:
  • What subculture do you belong to? Provide reasons for your answer.
  • What type of music does your subculture listen to? Name examples.
  • Does your subculture wear any specific clothing, jewellery, or hairstyles? Name a few examples.
  • Which brand names are associated with your subculture? Name them.
  • The learners must exchange the following information in groups in order to complete the table. If they all belong to the same subculture, they must do research on other subcultures, so as to bring about variety in the table.
Subculture Music Dance(s) Visual Art Clothing

After the completion of the table the learners receive a homework assignment: an essay of 200 to 250 words (pictures and / or illustrations are not compulsory, but recommended) on the following topic:

HOW ART REFLECTS AND INFLUENCES CULTURES, LIFESTYLES AND FASHION

Activity 2 (individual)

TO DESIGN A T-SHIRT

Requirements: A4-paper/ pencil/colourpencils or colour-ink/ [optional: old T-shirt (preferably white)]/ material paint or –ink/ brushes

Follow the learning module

THE PRESENTATION OF VISUAL ART IN THE CLASSROOM

  • The organisation of the classroom is of vital importance to the successful presentation of visual art. In contrast to other art forms like Drama, Dance and Music, Visual Art always works with materials for drawing, painting or sculpting.
  • Since waste materials are often used to cut down on costs, it would be wise to start holding collection days early in the academic year. Learners and staff could be asked, for instance, to bring waste materials to school every Monday – empty toilet rolls the one week, bottle caps the next, plastic containers, tins / cans, etc. These materials can be placed in different containers in the classroom, or stored elsewhere until needed.

USEFUL WASTE MATERIALS TO COLLECT

Natural colouring agents from vegetables and plants
Clay from clayey soil
Seeds, leaves, bark, wood, shells, etc.
Driftwood, waste wood - good for carving
Paper: Used computer paper or A4 waste paper [with one clean side]
Beads, buttons, thread
Make your own paper from waste: use for designing papier mâché objects, heads for puppets, artistic paper, etc.
The old plans of architects and engineers [with one clean surface] - ask around - most of these plans go to waste suppliers.
Phone around for any free waste paper and cut-offs from paper suppliers, printing houses, packaging companies and newspaper publishers - use old phone directories - look in the Yellow Pages, or ask learners whether their parents might have contacts, or work for any of these companies or factories.
Collect coloured waste paper and cardboard packaging, corrugated cardboard, old magazines, posters, packages, boxes, cardboard tubes - ideal for making collages and dolls / puppets.
Any waste paper or cardboard containers and packets can be used for three-dimensional projects, etc.
Any coloured or patterned materials and string, wire, metals.
Old machinery [ideal for drawing or to make sculptures with].
Ask members of your school community whether they have access to any serviceable donations and sources of waste products.

Remember that assessment must also cultivate values and attitudes in learners. When the learner knows that aspects like caring for art materials are also assessed, it will gradually instil a respect for these materials, as well as for the usefulness and recycling of waste materials.

Over-arching activity

To integrate the content of the four learning areas you can now present a performance where the rap of Learning Unit 1 is combined with the movement of Learning Unit 3, the characters of Learning Unit 2 and the T-shirt or clothing of Learning Unit 4.

Encourage the learners to be original in an effort to combine the four disciplines meaningfully in ONE presentation of five minutes.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.

yes that's correct
