Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Today I will learn about art elements, LINE and SHAPE, so that I CAN draw a SELF-PORTRAIT.

Today I will learn about the element, color, and use only a monochromatic color scheme to create my self-portrait.

Today I will learn about where people go to look at art and how art can be used to share information in the community so that I know where to find artwork and understand artwork better.

Classroom Activities

Students will learn about some famous artists and their self-portraits. They will use a handout guiding  them through how to make more accurate PROPORTIONS for facial features for their own self-portrait.  They will draw it with pencil, OUTLINE with marker and then color it in a monochromatic color scheme using markers and colored pencils. This will be used for a collaborative display and we will discuss where artwork is located on display. Students will upload their art to Artsonia and add a title. We will also watch a video and discuss where artwork can be found, what makes good art, and how artwork can share information about the community.
