This Change Your Style Resource Pack is designed to work within Key Stage 3 of the National Curriculum art and design syllabus.
The Resource Pack provides details from the website, photographs and drawings from the paper archives held by Norfolk Historic Environment Service designed to help children develop an awareness of different artistic styles used in the past and how they can be adapted and altered to create new art in different materials. By looking at personal objects (brooches, rings, pendants, buckles etc) from the past students research the use of particular motifs and translate them into a new textile design. The pack also includes possible teaching activities and ideas for cross curricular working.
Images used in the pack can also be accessed in an online teacher's gallery for use on interactive whiteboards at: http://gallery.e2bn.org/gallery755.html
The pack is part of a series of Resource Packs linked to the National Curriculum available from NorfolkHistoric Environment Service. Find details and download other packs on the Norfolk Heritage Explorer website.
