|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• Today I will learn about LINE and SPACE, so that I CAN draw a toucan. I’ll know I have it when I have combined line and shapes to create a tree frog.
Students will learn about artist, Henri Rousseau. We will watch a video and discuss some of his artwork. We will also discuss similarities and differences in works of art and between artworks and everyday objects. Students will draw a tree frog and add a background of their choosing. They will use oil pastels to go over lines and create a resist in their background. Next, they will paint using watercolor and blend colors, being mindful of how certain colors blend. Upon completion, students will upload their work to Artsonia along with an artist statement.
