The Four Knowledge Processes in Visual Art

The Four Knowledge Processes aim to use multiple pedagogies to address literacy in the classroom and to achieve better scaffolding for student learning. Students are offered multimodal learning outlets and given the opportunity to learn and express themselves in a variety of creative outlets. Teachers should ensure that they use multimodal resources in creative and innovative ways to stimulate engagement and inclusive learning.

The KnownArt analysis brainstorm. Students will try to address the following prompts. -What is the purpose of art? Does it have a purpose?-Can an artwork have a meaning, message or narrative?-How can we understand what an artwork means?-What is art analysis?

The NewWatch a short Prezi on Art Analysis. Students will take brief notes on the four processes; describing, analysing, interpreting and judging. They will record their notes in a four quadrant visual organiser.

1. Experiencing

2. Conceptualising

FunctionallyIntroduce students to their focus artwork, The Son of Man by Rene Magritte. They will need to fill out an art analysis structure sheet which will allow students to recognise the structure art analysis follows and help them realise the connections between art and literacy.

3. Analysing

By TheorisingStudents will be shown three different artwork, the Mona Lisa by Da Vinci (Renaissance art), Nike of Samothrace (Ancient Greek sculpture and The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali (Surrealist painting). The students will then conceptualise and record individually which artwork they believe shows the most meaning.

By NamingDefine the following art analysis terminology:Visual Metaphors Aesthetic Composition MediumGenre/Movement Technique Context

4. Applying

AppropriatelyStudents will create a parody drawing inspired directly by Magritte's Son of Man composition but will incorporate popular culture subjects or themes. This will establish a foundation for creative development and application.

CreativelyStudents will create their own surrealist painting using visual metaphors. Their artwork will be inspired by the techniques and symbols used by Magritte other paintings and will address a subject/narrative of their choice.

CriticallyThe class will come up and write their individual answers to the following prompts on a Graffiti Board:What do you like and dislike about this artwork?How does it make you feel?What is this artwork about?What does the apple mean?

Year 10:Task: Analyse and apply the visual metaphors used in Rene Magritte's surrealist artwork 'Son of Man' through written art analysis and creative application.
