About Art-student.netArt-student.net is a portal of art resources that accurately supports teaching and learning in the UK secondary sector, including sixth form and further education colleges. It helps students by managing and extending their use of ICT in art and design. It is approved by Curriculum Online, FERL and has been awarded Five Stars by Schoolzone.
Upgraded KS3 homework support for students. November - additional support for the Process Curriculum. We aim to make Art-student.net the most useful critical and contextual studies site for the UK secondary art teacher and student.
Art-student.net has been created to enable students to find high quality resources for their art research quickly and easily. It has been created from extensive art education experience over many years. The Internet is too vast for there to be any catalogue of all the available art and design resources. Finding precisely what is needed to develop practical work and research is one of the most essential skills that students can acquire. Even Net veterans waste precious time surfing.
As ICT has become embedded in secondary school art department teaching, teachers and students need very precise studio support. Art-student.net provides exactly this allowing students to work on their own. There is much general art available on the Net but it can be confusing and time wasting for students. This was the starting point for creating art-student.net, to provide a net for students theory and visual searches.
Art-student.net has been carefully planned to support art teaching practice and help develop ideas at the students level. With increasing use of whiteboards in art departments the site has been designed for use in any ICT situation, from presenting whiteboard lessons to individual homework research. It provides ICT support for making art in the studio. Art-student.net aims to adapt to the changing requirements of students and teachers in consultation with schools and considering BECTA’s guidelines for embedding ICT.
