Immersive - Lesson 2: Creating a Scene
- Lesson Film
- Craft Materials
In this lesson, the children will have a go at quick sketches of designs for their story from last week, and will learn some more modelling techniques for creating a set in their model box.
Children start to develop an understanding of a range of materials that can be used to represent different settings in their model box.
Remind the students of the freeze-frame stories that they created last week – that they produced a beginning, middle and end freeze frame to tell a story. We’re going to be using the pictures of those freeze frames for this exercise, sticking the images down and sketching round them directly into the portfolio.
In the final scene that they have sketched, the scene was set in a forest. Remind the children that from very early on in the design process, the designer will be thinking about how to model different parts of the set, so it’s important that they too keep practicing this. Spend ten minutes with the group to consider how you might represent their forest trees in the model box, using different materials.
Make sure they have taken a photo of their trees for their portfolios. You may wish to keep the trees they have made in case you want to use them in the coming weeks.
