Kelvingrove & Glasgow University Partnership


• Anne Wallace • Maggie Jago

Curriculum for Excellence The expressive arts experiences and outcomes will support staff in planning

challenging, inspirational and enjoyable learning and teaching activities. The initial statements are closely linked to the four capacities and can be used to help to plan a wide range of learning activities, which will enable our young people to become:

successful learners who can express themselves, think innovatively, meet challenges positively

confident individuals who have developed self-awareness, self-discipline, determination,

responsible citizens who can explore ethical questions, respond to personal and social issues,

effective contributors who can develop and express their creativity, work cooperatively and

and find imaginative solutions to problems and who have developed knowledge and skills related to the different arts and broader skills such as the use of technologies commitment and confidence through drawing on their own ideas, experiences and feelings, and through successful participation

and develop stances and views, who have deepened their insight and experiences of cultural identities and who have come to recognise the importance of the arts to the culture and identities of Scotland and other societies communicate with others, and, in so doing, show initiative, dependability, leadership and enterprise.

My learning in, through and about the expressive arts: • enables me to experience the inspiration and power of the arts • recognises and nurtures my creative and aesthetic talents • allows me to develop skills and techniques that are relevant to specific art forms and across the four capacities • provides opportunities for me to deepen my understanding of culture in Scotland and the wider world

• is enhanced and enriched through partnerships with professional arts companies, creative adults and cultural organisations.

Expressing The Unseen

Expressing the Unseen •

Working with a large group reviewing the three very different paintings provided the opportunity to hear everyone’s ideas and point of views – it was a clear illustration of the different perspectives of absence and presence

As both French and Scottish students, we gained a new interest in Scottish history and appreciation of Scottish Art through studying works of art in Kelvingrove Museum Even if you aren’t keen on a learning area, we experienced first hand that through trying and experiencing different approaches such as Drama, you can gain and retain more information – we now have a fuller understanding and appreciation of how using different approaches will work with children

• The drama techniques were very useful and it will be good to try these in the classroom such as freeze-frame, thought tracking and improvisation
