Deciphering Art

Secondary School Session for KS3-5.

Learn how visual qualities can be manipulated to evoke strong reactions and to represent ideas, beliefs and values. Through group discussion, students will compare paintings from the past with works by contemporary artists such as Banksy, and then develop visual ideas for their own piece of art, with a focus on either narrative painting or conveying meaning through symbolism.
