The learning objectives we've been working on for this assignment are:We will describe what an image represents, we will know different types of drawing media and we can identify safe and non-toxic art materials, tools and equipment.
We began by looking at Pablo Picasso's "Child with a Dove" painting and we described what we saw and what we thought was going on in the image.
I then introduced three geometric shapes; circle, rectangle and triangle and demonstrated how they could use these shapes to draw a person. Each student then used two of these shapes to draw a picture of themselves and then added an object or their favorite animal similar to Picasso's painting.
We outlined with marker and used multicultural crayons to color in the face and hands. Each student then choose which non-toxic drawing media they wanted to use to color in their drawing. They could choose from crayons, markers or colored pencils.
Our learning objective for this project was, we can identify and use the primary colors. We began by reviewing the primary colors and then used a ruler to break up our paper into three equal parts. Tempera cakes were used to paint each of the three sections in each of the primary colors.
We then reviewed the types of lines we learned about in kindergarten art, straight, wavy, zigzag, broken etc. On the background paper we painted each of the lines reviewed.
During the last class we drew Popsicle shapes on the back of each of the primary colored pieces, cut out and glued a real Popsicle stick to the back of each. The three primary Popsicles were then glued onto the painted line paper.
