Brewer, Year One
Brown – Beth Reeves
Learning Objective/Exit Outcomes:
- The student will be able to draw and identify various geometrical shapes and angles.
- Students will be able to interpret artwork created by peers.
- Students will collaborate to create original, abstract artwork.
MGSE4.G.1 Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
VA3.CR.2 Create works of art based on selected themes.
VA3.CR.1 Engage in the creative process to generate and visualize ideas by using subject matter and symbols to communicate meaning.
- Utilize multiple approaches to plan works of art incorporating imaginative ideas, universal themes, and symbolic images.
Geometry & Visual Art
The facilitator will introduce the strategy of Kinetic Drawing strategy. Students should be partnered together. At any given time, the facilitator will call out certain geometric shapes for the leader of the pair to begin drawing (obtuse, right angle, right triangle, etc.). As the students switch responsibility of being a leader, the facilitator will continue with the strategy.
Important questions to ask: What did you see us doing, individually and also as a group? What do you wonder we can do differently next time? Why? How might this strategy help us review for a test? Incorporate VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies). This activity should be introduced as the activity Mirror. It will help the students grasps the concepts that they need to pay attention to details and each other. As the lesson is wrapping up, really encourage students to interpret what they or their partners have drawn, while incorporating Visual Thinking Strategies.
