|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• Today I will learn about MULTI-MEDIA, so that I CAN use a variety of materials to color in my drawing. I’ll know I have it when I have used TEMPERA PAINT for the large areas and OIL PASTELS for the smaller areas.
•Today I will learn about VALUE and SHAPE, so that I CAN create an underwater scene with small, medium, and/or marine life.
•Today I will learn about SPACE, so that I CAN arrange my objects in the correct order so they OVERLAP.
Students will learn about copyright law and watch a video to explore the coral reef. They will learn ways to show the illusion of space on a 2D surface. They will then draw and paint, as well as use oil pastels to create their Square1 artwork. They may use classroom visuals, the video, or Kindles to aid in inspiration. We will also discuss the similarities and differences between artworks and everyday objects artworks and why they are important in school or the community and explore how artists make an impact on the community. Students will publish and write about their artwork on Artsonia.
