One year my Intro to Art class made an accordion book, with a theme, each page emphasized an element of design, they could paint, draw, collage, whatever medium they wanted. On the back side of the accordion book they typed and printed the word and definition. They produced some very original, beautiful books.

Subject: student teacher needs help with elements of art
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. I just started my placement
in high school and I have to teach the elements of art, (line, shape, value,
texture, space color, form) to the 9th grade class. I have one class period,
1 1/2 hours, for each lesson. That includes instruction and working time.
Seems like a such a short time for something so important! Any and all
help with lesson plan ideas would be greatly appreciated.
