Instructional Activities Each Day:

Go over the learning targets.  Then model how to correctly use watercolor paint, water, paintbrushes and paper towels to paint.  Talk about how we always rinse our brushes before we dip our paint into another color. We don’t smash our paint brushes etc.  Then play a video on Google slide showing how to paint the cool colored spiral lines all over their sheet.  Make sure students put their name and teacher’s name on the back.  If time allows, begin drawing a snowman using another piece of paper.  Next week, they will finish drawing their snowmen and they will glue them to the cool color spiral sheet they painted today.

Instructional Activities Each Day:

Go over the learning targets.  Model for students how to use their rulers correctly.  Discuss how we are going to use 1 point perspective.  We will have a vanishing point in the middle of our paper.  Model how to draw a hallway and aquarium using rulers and pencils.  Model how to use the element of space to draw sea creatures small if they want them to look like they are far away.  Have them draw sea creatures large if they want them to look close to the viewer.  

Materials: drawing paper, pencils, rulers, crayons, sharpies




 

Fourth Grade:

Goal/Learning Target: I am learning to use 1 point perspective to draw a farm landscape.  I am learning to use the element of space by drawing things large to make them appear close and drawing things small to make them appear far away.

Instructional Activities Each Day: 

Go over the learning targets.  Show students artwork of farm life from Cedar Rapids Museum of art.  Have students talk about the use of space.  What did he draw in his paintings?  Did he draw some things large and some things small to show space?  Then model how to use a ruler to draw a horizon line on their paper. They will use rulers to keep their lines straight.  Then model how to draw a dot in the middle of the line to show the vanishing point.  Model how to draw diagonal lines coming from the vanishing point to make the rows in the field.  Have students brainstorm about what they could draw in the foreground and background.  The objects in the background will be small and not very detailed.  The objects in the foreground will be large and full of detail.  

Materials: drawing paper, rulers, pencils, colored pencils

Instructional Activities Each Day:

Go over the learning targets.  Show students famous cityscapes.  Discuss how the artists used space to create the illusion of depth and space.  Some objects or buildings are very large and they look close to the viewer. Some objects and buildings are very small and they look far away.  Then model for students how to use a ruler to create 1 point perspective.  They will be using a ruler to draw straight lines.  They will be drawing a vanishing point in the middle of their paper.  They will use the ruler to draw a road and skyscrapers on each side.  

Materials: drawing paper, pencils, rulers, colored pencils
