|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
Students will use ink daubers filled with India ink to create a heart based on the characteristics of Brazilian artist, Romero Britto. Students will study line, shapes, pattern and color and use these Art Elements to complete their drawings. Finally, the students will write about their artwork and justify decisions made about content and formal qualities.
Day 1. We will review the Element of Art line. Students will work in groups and observe a number of images produced by Romero Britto. They will be asked to identify common features of his art (simple shapes and lines, bright colors, sections divided by thick black lines, patterns) and write them down.
At the carpet, we will watch a video about the Romero Britto and compare some of his work to to Pablo Picassos Cubist work, looking for similarities. We will discuss patterns they observe in Britto’s artwork and what patterns they could come up with as well.
At their tables, students will work on a planning sheet, coming up with a variety of line or shape patterns.
Day 2. We will review Romero Britto’s style, lines, shapes, and patterns. Students will finish their planning sheet and create a heart using a template and divide the heart into sections using bingo daubers, applying thick black lines. They will put patterns of their choosing into each section.
Day3 and 4. We will study warm and cool colors more in depth. Students will learn about the color wheel and how certain colors are created when mixing them. They will complete their composition using bleeding art tissue. They are to apply warm or cool colored tissue in each section of their heart with a paintbrush and water. Last, students will create a unique background of their choosing with Paint Stix. Upon completion, students will grade themselves with an Art Rubric.
