SPECTRUM HOMESCHOOL Art Lesson Plans March 17, 2011

SPECTRUM HOMESCHOOL COMMUNITY
Art Lesson Plans March 17, 2011

WARM UPS:
1. Shading practice with side of pencil making patterns like leaves.
2. Rolling swirls like ocean waves. 3. Arches like rainbows. 4. Squares in negative space, we don’t draw the square but shading all the surrounding areas.

QUICK DRAW CHALLENGE: 
Items were brought in from the kitchen; students choose one to draw in 5 minutes time.

CLASS PROJECTS:
A demonstration on drawing an idem with a repeated pattern.
We have had an intense few weeks with portrait, so to return to fun of drawing we sketched outside and drew scenes of the hill at the back of the church.

TAKE HOME SKILLBUILDERS:
A four leafed clover, (It is St. Patrick’s Day after all). How to sketch Lucy the Lady Bug. How to sketch a Roy the Space Ranger with focus on the lower half of the face. 

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: "In his heart a man plans his course but the Lord determines his steps." Proverbs 16:9, NIV.
     We put together our plans with greatest care. Our plans are sometimes vague and sometimes clear cut. A sailor may use the stars or a compass to set his course. We are often our own course. Our course is the directions we are going the big picture the agenda the goal and destination. The Lord is the ruler of the universe he rules all things and we are subject to his authority. We may leave him out of our plans but he will be in them.
     It is a comfort that our God is good and compassionate and in his love he desires the best for us.  We must not forget to include God in our plans. Whatever our plans are to leave God out is to invite him in unwittingly, perhaps even changing our course against our will. If we put God in our plans we may still find our destination changes but we will not be going against our will.
