Free GCSE art lesson plans: LGBT+ artists from David Hockney to Wu Tsang
Just Like Us, the LGBT+ young people’s charity, has released a series of free GCSE art lesson plans, covering both KS3 and KS4.
The free, ready-to-go resources include a KS3 lesson plan on LGBT+ artists – from David Hockney to Wu Tsang – and a KS4 PowerPoint presentation exploring the history of LGBT+ identities in art, stretching back thousands of years.
The aims of these lessons are to explore the work of LGBT+ artists, and the ways that LGBT+ identities have been represented in art throughout history.

What is School Diversity Week?
Every June, Just Like Us runs School Diversity Week: a celebration of LGBT+ equality in primary and secondary schools across the UK.
As part of this, Just Like Us has created more than 50 free, LGBT+ inclusive resources for use in schools. These include lesson plans, worksheets, assembly ideas, story time discussions, and presentations. Plus, there is a Rainbow Friday non-uniform day that raises money for Just Like Us.
Each year, thousands of UK primary and secondary schools take part in School Diversity Week, gaining free access to a host of LGBT+ inclusive lessons – from the life of Alan Turing to the poetry of Carol Ann Duffy.
