Hi Joe,

I remember a series of videos that Penn and Teller (the comedy team),
created that dealt with the elements and principles of art. The individual
videos were quite entertaining and reasonable in length so to be both a very
effective and informative teaching tool. They were also geared to a wide
age group and to the best of my recollection be used at multiple levels.
Unfortunately, I don't remember the title offhand, but if you are interested
I will do some digging.

Hey everyone.
I am trying to develop a lesson plan that is a basic overview of the Elem=
ents of Design. This will introduce the elements without going into too =
much detail, and than we will go into each element more thoroughly throug=
hout the year. It is for my Art I, high school students. Right now I am=
 working on an idea of having the students make a poster that explains an=
d illustrates each of the elements. What other ideas are out there and o=
r what have others tried? Plus if you have any good websites that discuss=
es Poster Design please send them along. =20
