|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.
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 you can see artwork in the community and questions they should ask when looking at art.
