Spectrum Homeschool Art Lesson Plans March 3, 2011

SPECTRUM HOMESCHOOL COMMUNITY
Art Lesson Plans March 3, 2011

WARM-UPS:
1. Shading practice with side of pencil making lighting bolts.
2. Rolling swirls with attention to keeping swirls even.
3. Hills to mountains; using horizontal lines to draw rows of hills with graduation to jagged lines above in rows to draw mountains.
4. Circles in negative space, we don’t draw the circle but shading all the surrounding areas.

QUICK DRAW CHALLENGE:
Several stuffed toy animals were brought in and the students are to draw one in 4 minutes using whatever technique they wish.

CLASS PROJECTS:
We will draw a face of a civil war re-enactor from a photo. (Because I forgot about African American history month, so I found a picture from a history book of a Black Civil War soldier.)   The technique being developed is the blocking in of large areas and using light areas against dark to develop a picture.

Our alternative class projects are drawing a calculator- I will bring several in. Additionally more stuffed animals will be available.   

TAKE HOME SKILLBUILDERS:
The Viking ship (the boys will like this one). This was on my blog last week but not everyone got to it so I have a few extra to hand out. Other skill builders include a Mute Swan and a Seahorse.  I spent several hours designing these skill builders I hope they are fun and helpful for the students.

OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY:
Our inspiration for today is from 2 Chronicles 1:10. “Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?” We know the story of how the angel of the Lord appeared to Solomon at night after he worshiped and offered him anything he wanted. Solomon asked for wisdom.  It was given to him. God delights to give wisdom. If we are having problems with an art project or any other thing we can ask God for wisdom and we can be confident he will give it to us.
