Art and Design KS3 / GCSE: The craft of narrow boat painting
Paul Martin explores the tradition of narrow boat painting with Jane Marshall on the Shropshire Union Canal.
She explains the themes and colours of narrow boat art and how to build up simple images from a template.
This clip is from the series Paul Martin's Handmade Revolution.
Could be used to start a painting project incorporating modern materials into a traditional style.
Students could try to reproduce some of the floral designs demonstrated in the clip, practising painting in stages to build up a colour base of their image.
This clip will be relevant for teaching art and design at KS3 and GCSE in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and National 4 and 5 in Scotland.
