Art 1 Lesson Plans, December 1, 2011

PRE CLASS: students present work done over the break for instructor’s critique.

INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: "Rejoice in the Lord always, again I will say, rejoice." Philippians 4: 4. We need to have a joyful attitude to have a healthy life and to produce good results in art or anything.  We need a good source of joy. The Lord is the source of joy. We must decide to accept his joy, and decide to obey his command to be joyful.  

INSTRUCTION AND DEMONSTRATION ON TECHNIQUE:  How to add texture to a pencil drawing.

WARM UPS: 1. Today we have a hand out with patterns to copy. 2. Waves in a pattern- keeping the pattern even. 3. Kitten in scribble. 4. Dog barking- drawn in block style using large dark masses.

QUICK DRAW CHALLENGE: We will sketch an idem from the bag of still life subjects.

CLASS PROJECTS:  we will work on various still life subjects with the goal of developing detail.

AT HOME THIS WEEK: Take home worksheets of a tugboat, and a lizard.
