There are scenes of her boyfriend playing music on the barge interspersed with light effects similar to her richly coloured paintings. The canal is her source of inspiration and living on the boat brings together two worlds: Canal life and city life. She shows how her ideas emerge from the subconscious and are influenced by classical and Renaissance, religious and Pre-Raphaelite art movements. This clip is from Making Art Work, a BBC compilation of short films following six UK-based leading artists as they create new works from scratch.

Students could take photographs of locations they know well; it might be where they live, their journey to school or somewhere else. Ask them to find a traditional historical artwork that may have some similarity to their photograph and get them to make a collage of the artworks, combining the two places. These clips will be relevant for teaching Art and Design at GCSE/KS4 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and National 4/5 or Higher in Scotland. The topics discussed will support OCR, Edexcel, AQA, WJEC GCSE in England and Wales, CCEA GCSE in Northern Ireland and SQA National 4/5 and Higher in Scotland. ===================== For more clips from other subjects at the BBC Teach YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/bbcteach More from BBC Learning Zone: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningzone More resources from BBC Bitesize: http://www.bbc.co.uk/education ===================== Subscribe to create your own customised playlists, and get notified about our latest clips.
