Art Direction: Cultivating Creative Vision Through Art and Design

Are you an Art or English teacher? Frame your next creative lesson through the role of an Art Director, as pupils design a room for their favourite film or book character. Introduce this task by bringing out the hidden detective in your pupils, by challenging them to examine a film still of your choice. As well as developing learners' powers of deduction, we focus their attention on the importance of visual design in films and in meaning-making.

This resource is aimed for use with pupils aged 7-14 and designed for flexible delivery in a variety of contexts: in subject-specific lessons, specific careers lessons, or during an Into Film Club. 

Download the free resource to inspire your pupils and help broaden their understanding of future job roles available to them.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
