Raising awareness of Clyde regeneration

This project will develop learners' k/u of 2D design processes by using Clyde architecture as a starting point to create a unique poster to market to a Clyde developer; local architect; LA personnel (Housing dept.) and local community to be selected for exhibition within local community and throughout Glasgow as part of Clyde Waterfront's advertising campaign.

Broad Outcomes of learning

• Subject knowledge gained and enhanced e.g. the design process, working to the constraints of the design brief (responsibility to meeting needs of others) 
• Develop enterprise and employability skills: application of knowledge in a real situation by being able to follow a brief, by being in competition with others and by presenting finished product to whole class (selling your product also relates to selling oneself in an interview situation) 
• Learners have developed enterprising skills identified as 4 capacities of CfE

Relevance to curriculum

• Supports 5-14 Art & Design studies, students will work with the visual elements: line, shape, colour and composition 
• Relevance of how curriculum topic on poster design is relevant to work and life (everything that you see around has been through the design process) and how this subject knowledge is put into practice in a real situation e.g. discuss why do people/companies advertise their products? Think of examples of advertising - in everyday life we are bombarded by advertising campaigns
