Being a Visual Detective: a visual literacy framework for inspiring Literacy and Expressive Art


Suitable for all levels and stages this session introduces a handy framework for analysing artworks whilst growing vocabulary and developing critical skills. Using the analogy of forensic investigation – CSI  Dundee – we will explore the exhibition, print works and reproductions, gathering evidence and then reporting back on findings. Great for group or individual work, for talking and listening, for recognising the CfE visual elements and for building confidence for both teachers and learners. You can take the resource away and use it in class the next day.
