Re: [teacherartexchange] recommendations for MS videos

I agree with Judy...the "Master's of Illusion" is great! I use this each
term with my Beg. Art high school students before we study one-point and
two-point perspective. Following approximately three days of perspective
basics, I have the students design a room of their own with all the
furnishings and in colored pencil. They LOVE this project and each one is
unique and very beautiful.
    Also, I too use the Brommer videos on Principles and Elements of Design
for my Design I classes. As they view each video, I have them fill out
answers to the questions I've put together....keeps them alert. Then the
following week I give them a quiz (for the elements and then the
principles-about 3 weeks apart).

Greetings Heather and all,

You might want to check out the archives from May 2004
Scroll to Top 5 videos for Middle School.

Also look at the posts about the video for Masks from many cultures.

I really liked Masters of Illusions - great tie in to Renaissance art
and perspective (including anamorphic art) - plus brings Renaissance
up to date (career/set design).

I used the Gerald Brommer elements and principles videos with 7th
grade (we fast forwarded through most the project demos). My students
did a work sheet for each video. Some folks recommend the Brommer
Perspective video (I wasn't wild about it).
