Creating a Visual Brief for your School’s Facade

Add to Scrapbook

The Schools Programme has developed an Activity Pack for teachers and facilitators to use to make the most of an existing school façade or as part of a larger school redesign and build project.

Based on sessions carried out with Shawlands Academy, the pack comprises five workshops which aim to enable a group of participants to investigate and analyse their school’s façade and generate a visual brief, consisting of a set of considered ideas to take forward for the improvement of the school’s frontage.

Activities within the pack cover a number of Curriculum for Excellence experiences and outcomes including social studies, expressive arts, technologies, literacy and health & wellbeing.
