Shaping the View: Composition Basics

Students view images from the Metropolitan Museum of Art web site, and list the objects and figures in the image. They discuss the way their eyes move around the canvas and take note of where their eyes fall, follow and finish. Students download diagrams from the Student LaunchPad (link on the lesson plan) and discuss the image. This is the first of 4 lessons in this unit.

Lesson Planet has helped me find lessons that add to my curriculum. It is also a great website to use when one needs to search for certain topics and how to introduce those topics, it also gives a lot of options for varied learners.
