In this lesson, you will think about how the story of Swan Lake can be translated into different settings.

    Lesson Overview


    The children will learn how to produce very quick ideas for their chosen Swan Lake setting in rough. They will understand that stories can be told in different ways and will have considered how changing the setting influences how the audience feels.

What did they find tricky about quick modelling? Did anything surprise them about being quick rather than neat? Explain that in the next lesson, they will be using these ideas as a stimulus to create their own Swan Lake moodboard. Show them some examples of designers’ moodboards online. Make sure the students have taken photos of their initial ideas/modelling so that they can stick this in their portfolio.
