Digital Art Week takes place from April 28th to May 2nd. This is the 4th year of this project which gives primary school pupils around Ireland the opportunity to share their digital art with other pupils around the country and complete some fun visual arts activities. To celebrate Digital Art Week, I’ve put together a visual arts-based table quiz for schools.
Eight rounds of six questions, a tie-break round and answers to all questions are on 129 Powerpoint slides. I’ve attempted to provide a variety of questions with varying degrees of difficulty. Hopefully, there is a mixture of easy enough questions and some to challenge the better able pupils. I’ve included lots of (a), (b) or (c) type questions to allow pupils the chance to guess answers.
The aim really is that pupils should be able to get a good few correct with the harder ones there to sort out winners. It is also hoped that pupils will learn something new about visual arts or great artists and that they may be encouraged to find out more about an artist/type of art mentioned in the quiz.
This quiz is roughly suitable for middle/senior pupils in the primary school, from 3rd to 6th classes. If you are doing the quiz with a variety of classes, try to have pupils from different classes on the one team. So, for example, try to have at least one pupil from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes on each team.
The quiz is very suitable for the IWB in the classroom or in the school hall with laptop and digital projector. Please let me know how you organised your Digital Art Week Table Quiz and how your pupils got on with the questions.
