Students identify how to create a flattering figure and demonstrate their knowledge through a portfolio page. They create a professional fashion presentation incorporating the principles and elements of design, explain each in writing, (portfolio, color board, power point, and display). Students also identify how to consider proportion in the overall effect of a fashion garment as well as demonstrate what they have learned through a portfolio assignment and discussion.
Students create a professional fashion presentation incorporating the principles and elements of design, explain each in writing, (portfolio, color board, power point, display, etc.). They learn how to create a flattering figure and demonstrate knowledge by doing the portfolio project.
Students participate in activities in which they explore how the space and objects around them can be altered. Using various types of software, they design and create a three-dimensional building and share it with the class. They also create a two-dimensinal room with specific measurements.
You can't truly analyze art until you understand the types of decisions artists make while creating it. Presented here, are definitions and examples of the basic elements of art and design, in relation to how they are used in the creation of art as well as the analysis of it.
Caricature drawing is fun, and can help learners explore the principle of design and content specific vocabulary. They view a video and books that use character drawings, discuss vocabulary such as exaggeration, proportion, and symmetry, then draw a caricature of a person or animal.
Students use materials found at a resource table to design simple devices that will house instruments to take water samples from a tub of water. They design 3 instruments, each varying in density so that one will float, one will hover and one will sink. The work in teams and each member contributes to the design. After experimentation, they share designs with the rest of class.
In this bedroom redecoration project, your young mathematicians become interior designers. They plan, draw, and determine finances for the project. They apply their knowledge of working with decimals, geometric shapes, and problem solving skills as they choose paint, flooring and furniture for the project.
Puppets are fun for any age and can be used to reinforce creative thinking, reading skills, and dramatic play. In Part One of a two-part lesson, learners begin to design puppets based on characters from the Nutcracker Fantasy. A facial proportions handout will help them as they start sculpting. You can access Part Two in the Additional Materials section.
Fourth graders design a necklace using beads. In this algebraic math lesson, 4th graders are given small packs of beads to use in creating a pattern for a necklace, then determine how many packs of beads they would need to complete the necklace and how much the necklace would cost. Lesson includes extension activities and a follow-up article explaining this type of activity.
Students use proportions to find distances using maps and measurements. In this real world math lesson, students complete a course marked outside, then map the course and find locations. Lesson includes an article explaining why this type of activity is used and extension activities.
Students become familiar with the art and architecture and history of the Chicago World's Fair. In this public arts project lesson, students compare and contrast fine art and public art through a study of the exhibits at the Chicago World's Fair. Students examine and discuss neoclassical design and modernist design. Students complete worksheets after examining pictures.
