Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

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

Classroom Activities

 Students will learn about some famous artists and their self-portraits.  We will discuss their use of the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design. 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 statement.
