In view of the Turner Prize being held in Glasgow in 2015, this resource has been created to help students explore art in film and filmmaking as art. It celebrates the Turner Prize by encouraging young people to explore contemporary artists, offering stimulus for young people's creation of art using film, animation and video installations. Three key films are examined: Mr. Turner; Exit Through The Gift Shop; and Norman McLaren's Neighbours. The activities and frameworks provide a springboard for young people to develop their own self-expression through their artwork, including the production of their own experimental film, with opportunities for students to record their responses throughout.
It includes a case study from a school which successfully had its students' work exhibited at the Scottish National Gallery. You can watch the short films here.
