My best Art teacher friend, Sherry Sanning, from Garrett Elementary shared this lesson idea with me many years ago. The learning objective for this project is to produce a figure in an action pose. I first made a class set of posable figures of tag board and mini brads. After folding the paper in half two times the tag board patterns were used to place in an action pose and traced with pencil. Tempera cakes were used to paint the figures and background using only primary and secondary colors. When the paint was dry we used oil pastel to add small, neat pattern to the background or figure. I have included the lesson plan here and a link to the instructional video below.
Check out my YouTube I've been teaching elementary Art for 18 years the last eight at Becky-David in the Francis Howell School District. Teaching Art is a great job and I absolutely love it! My job is made easier by all the wonderful Art teachers out there who share their ideas and "secrets" with me personally and through the internet. Thank you!
