After posing their stuffed animals your young artists will sketch them in light colored chalk. After sketching, the second graders fill the animal with lines to show the fur, or texture of the animal. They put a shadow under their animal, coloring solidly the background and table. This lesson could be used for various ages.
Students study textures and identify textures using satellite images. In this texture instructional activity, students study various objects and define their textures. Students feel crayon rubbings and sort them into groups. Students use a book with satellite images to further study textures. Students use the worksheet 'Bumpy, Wrinkled, Smooth' to make their own life-the-flap book.
Reinforce the concept of sorting and classification with this simple activity involving attribute blocks. Learners divide blocks into groups based on specific attributes, participate in an activity to guess what is in a paper sack based on texture, and use KidPix to sort pictures into groups.
Students explore lines and texture in a still-life painting. In this visual arts instructional activity, students study William Merrit Chase's painting "Still Life With Fish" and discuss the lines in the painting. Students choose a line to repeat in their own oil pastel painting.
I love art and so do children of all ages. Your very youngest learners explore texture as they examine texture on their person, in their classroom, and then apply it to neat clay pumpkins. They roll clay into balls, flatten them out, and then use a variety of texture tools to give their pumpkins a unique look and feel. Tip: Have the class go on a texture hunt to look for things that are fuzzy, rough, bumpy, and smooth.
Students discuss Scholastic Art Magazine issue on 'Artists Today' . They participate in a class discussion & watch a demonstration on the use of 'found objects' and ordinary materials (i.e. paper towels, leaves) to create surface texture and dimension for their art work. They explore surface preparation techniques.
Students define the origin of rock samples and how surface core samples can tell us about the history and make-up of Mars. Candies are used as a Martian surface sample. Students study the samples and make a hypothesis about the cause of any texture. Students then answer questions based on their investigations.
What a neat test! The class is asked to draw and color to create examples of eight elements of art. They focus on each element (line, value, shape, form, space, texture, primary and secondary color) by creating an original piece in each box. This could also be a great note taking tool during an art lecture.
How do you figure out what word best completes a sentence? The answers and explanations key that accompanies an eight sentence exercise outlines the strategies used to determine the correct response for assessments of this type. Therefore, the resource could be used as the basis of a reading comprehension strategies lesson, as a prompt for group work, or as a homework assignment.
One of the biggest parts of understanding fine art is being able to critique it based on criteria. Little learners discuss the elements of art and then hold a contest where they determine which of 10 pieces is the best. They discuss each piece in terms of texture, line, color, emotion, and content, and then each child gets to add the colored ribbon most appropriate to each piece. The picture with the most gold ribbons wins the contest. Tip: This activity could be done with stories or books too.
