Leading the Way…


Art Lesson Plans Sept. 5-8

No School Monday

Art 1 –

Positive/Negative Face – Due at the end of class Wednesday.

* Students will draw a profile of a face on the right side of their paper and then they will draw a profile on the left side of their paper.
* They will then connect the two profiles and create a vase.
* Next, students will draw different types of shapes, lines, patterns, etc. in the positive part of the vase. To create a unique design.
* They will need to fill in their designs with a sharpie.
* Once all sharpie and color is added they need to cut out the profile vase leaving on the negative vase shape.

Need Composition Book
* Art Element and Principle Vocabulary

Worksheet for composition book – Combination of Art Elements and principal drawings

* Blind Contour/Contour Drawings of their hand and shoe
*Students will first work on a blind contour (they will place a hole in the center of a scratch sheet of paper and then place that sheet of paper on a pencil.)
*This will not allow the student to look at what they are drawing
* Contour drawings are an excellent way to train the eye to draw what they really see rather than what they think is there.
*Students will pick a point on their hand and slowly journey around the contour or edge (blind contour)
*Remember when the eye begins to move so should the pencil. Do not pick up your pencil. Do not panic if your drawing of your ha d looks more like a squashed beetle.

Art 2

Value Project – Due end of class Thursday

*students will draw their arm an hand on a sheet of paper.
* inside the hand will be filled with at least 20 different sentences about themselves. These will be done in sharpie
*on the outside they can draw different images. The images will be different things about themselves and will be done in pencil using the different values they learned.



*Students will choose a word that means something to them
*They will turn that word into me (somethings that describes them or means something to them
*Students will then be given a sign language chart
*They will illustrate the word they have chosen in sign language in their drawing
*Students must include the wrist and as much of the arm as they want. Each hand must come off the edge of the paper.
*Once they have drawn each of their letters in sign language, they next need to create a background
*the background can be abstract or relevant to their word.
