SPECTRUM HOMESCHOOL COMMUNITY
Art Lesson Plans March 24, 2011

WARM UPS: 1. Texture practice, shading practice with side of pencil making patterns like “Zs” “Ws”, “Ns”, and “Ms”  2. Choppy short lines. 3. Boxes. 4. Circles and ovals..

QUICK DRAW CHALLENGE:  A short stack of old books at different angles.  students choose one to draw in 5 minutes time.

CLASS PROJECTS: Last week we sketched outdoors but it is raining so we will have some choices 1. Sketch animals from some library books. 2. Sketch dancers from ballet posters. Unless it is nice outside we may sketch scenes at the back of the church.

TAKE HOME SKILLBUILDERS: These skill builders are a little more challenging: An ancient roman tower, a mile marker covered in ivy, an old mission bell in a wall. 

LONG TERM PROJECT: Continue to read the Book of Acts and illustrate each chapter. Keep these illustrations in a folder to mount later on. One illustration must be a person.

OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth” Proverbs 10:4, NIV.
 It may seem pretty obvious but today we have a culture of laziness and spending time in amusements and entertainment.  I always say “Save the fun stuff for last.” Do the hard work first not just to get it over with but so you are giving your best energy and freshness to the task. To be diligent is to not give up, or quit. Our God is on our side and he wants to bless us he has given us this life principle to bless us with. If you are struggling with laziness pray for the holy spirit to give you the power of victory. I know you will have success.
