Drawing Portraits Using a Grid
A well-developed art lesson is always great to have around. This lesson on portrait drawing includes a full procedure, modifications, background information on artist Chuck Close, recommended websites, and a few thoughts from the lesson's developer. Portrait drawing using the grid method can be your next great art project.
New! Task: Miniature Golf
"Fore!" All right, no one really yells this out in miniature golf, but this well-defined activity will have your charges using lots of numbers in their unique design of a miniature golf hole. Included in the activity criteria is the geometric difficulty of scoring a hole-in-one, creative use of material, and best use of space. Designers need to include scale drawings of their designs complete with calculations and a report explaining the design. This a fantastic lesson that will get your kids motivated and thinking mathematically.
Informed Drawing Through Observation
Students practice observation techniques to improve their drawing skills. In this drawing technique lesson, students assess drawing as an art media and discuss realism. Students view examples of animal drawings and practice drawing using shape, contour, value, and detail.
Portrait Drawing Using a Model - Activity 1
Students create a realistic portrait using a live model and charcoal in this introductory art lesson on portrait drawing. A video and resource links are included to aid in instructional strategies.
Technology-Lesson 2-Resolving Issues
Students define resolution. They explain the relationship between probe size and resolution and explain why information in three dimensions is necessary to describe the structure of an object. Research technology to the study of Cellular and Molecular Biology.
Still Life Printmaking
Students use a still life to make a drawing and then transfer to a styrofoam plate to use as a method of printing.
Dimension in Art
Third graders consider space and the techniques artists use to create three-dimensionality within a painting or drawing. They examine works by Millet, Bruegel and Demuth and then create original drawings that explore the effects of dimension.
Seeing in 3D: Interpreting Two-Dimensional Diagrams of Three-Dimensional Objects
Students hone in on their skills at reading diagrams. In this dimensional lesson students collect information on the functions of organs then figure out how all the parts work together.
A Bug's Journey
Students research the art of John Baldessari. In this art history lesson, students examine Baldessari's drawing of a beetle and discuss the characteristics of these bugs. They write a story from a bug's perspective and create their own artwork.
Keith Haring And Aboriginal Art
High schoolers explore the art of Keith Haring and examine how it relates to Aboriginal art. In this fundamentals of art lesson plan, students examine the fundamental elements of art, such as, line, symmetry, contrast, balance, color tints, and shades. High schoolers use both Haring and Aboriginal art as inspiration for their own masterpieces.
Area and Perimeter
Learners find the area and perimeter of regular polygons and composite figures and examine the effect on the area and perimeter of a figure if the dimensions are multiplied by a constant. The nine page worksheet contains thirty-seven problems. Answers are not included, but the worksheet is designed to accompany Chapter 9 of the Holt Geometry book.
New! Using Linear Equations to Define Geometric Solids
Making the transition from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids can be difficult for many geometry students. This comprehensive lesson starts with writing and graphing linear equations to define a bounded region and calculating the areas and perimeters of the space. Using this as a base, the lesson then has learners revolve these regions to create solid figures and calculate the resulting volume. A real-world example using a bowling ball and visualization software caps off this in-depth instruction.
Fifth graders combine Fine Arts, Mathematics and Technology together to create and design a CD-ROM cover sleeve. They incorporate paint, web tools and/or graphic designs to assist them with their creations.
What You Can Learn From a Map
Students discover how to interpret maps. In this geography skills lesson, students explore geographic themes as they complete worksheet activities regarding road maps, shaded relief maps, and topographic maps.
A Bug's Journey
Students examine the artwork of John Baldessari that was inspired by a 16th century drawing of a beetle. They analyze a drawing of a beetle, discuss the insect's characteristics, and write a story from the perspective of a bug. Also, they compare contemporary artwork with the 16th century art, use mixed media to develop a three-dimensional piece of art, and display the work.
A Bird's-eye View
Sixth graders create a chalk drawing of a scene of their choice by using the process and techniques of horizon line, a variety of lines, vanishing points, and three-dimensional techniques.
Gazebos and Other Worlds
Design a simple structure such as the gazebo. Work with your class to identify the six faces of a cube pattern and name other uses of patterns in industry. They draft, cut out, and assemble a cube pattern. They draw out and assemble two more models at different scales.
Design Your Dream Space
Fifth graders work on the skill of creating depth in their own drawings that create the illusion of being three dimensional. They research the drawing methods used to create life-like paintings of the Renaissance Period.
Contour Line Lesson Plan
Students, after exploring various forms of contour lines and practice drawing them, produce a unique pencil drawing. Included in detail are blind contour lines, contour lines, contour lines "with help," structural plane, format/picture plane and composition. They sketch a contour drawing of their hand in their sketchbooks.
Perspective on Pavimenti: Finding Perspective Mathematically
Sixth graders use ratios to find the correct heights of objects as they recede in space. In this arts and math lessons, 6th graders determine how to use ratios to find the correct heights of objects that appear to be receding in space and they design drawings based on their calculations.
