LOVE Poster

4th - 6th
Students research pop or contemporary artists like Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, and Roy Lichtenstein and examine their simple style of drawing and painting. They create a contemporary art poster using shading gradient techniques and mixed media.
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.
Learners, 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.
Seventh graders will learn to create the illusion of depth on a two dimensional surface using the technique of perspective.Analyze famous works of art and photographs of local architecture and identify how each is using perspective. Apply knowledge of light source and value to enhance the depth of the drawing.
Students examine how artists use the picture plane to depict two and three dimensions. They view online images, discuss how space is used to depict three-dimensional space, and create a painting.
Students practice observation techniques to improve their drawing skills. In this drawing technique lesson plan, 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.
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.
"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. 
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.

Fractal Lesson

9th - 10th
RAISE - Rural Alliance for Improving Science Education has put together an incredible lesson on fractals. Examples using Mandelbrot Sets, Sierpinski's Triangle and Koch's Snowflake are discussed with activities for each. There is a worksheet in which measurements are made on a segment of a river using 3 different scales. Note: There is a computer lesson for those who have access.
In this measurement worksheet, 7th graders solve 14 various types of problems that include completing a table with the base, height, and/or area of triangles and solving a number of word problems with measurement. They also estimate the area and perimeter of a trapezoid and a square. Then, students complete a table that identifies the width, length, height, surface area, and volume of rectangular prisms.
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.
Students use a still life to make a drawing and then transfer to a styrofoam plate to use as a method of printing.
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

In this fundamentals of art lesson, students examine the fundamental elements of art, such as, line, symmetry, contrast, balance, color tints, and shades. Young scholars use both Haring and Aboriginal art as inspiration for their own masterpieces.
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.
