I have never played this game but always wanted to after I got into hs. The
book Art Synetics (by Nicolas Rourke?) has a game in it that is played to
music. Seems like it is a design project on a large sheet of bulletin board
paper. Students are divided into groups and have different tools for
stamping designs (round sponge, square, etc.) . A tape is recorded which
has different kinds of music, when the music changes the students stamp
their designs on the paper. I know I seem really vague here and I might
even be combining two projects, but my book is at school.
I did make an Art Bingo game using general terms (media, elements,
principles, form) as an introduction to the language of art. Also, every
item has a visual and the written term. It's very simple because we don't
call out "B - relief sculpture", just "relief sculpture". Everyone
eventually wins because the teams that win have to clear their board and
start from scratch, while the others keep playing. All winners earn a treat.
They always play until everyone wins, too.
This summer I made a "McGugan's Color Bingo". It's more complicated and
uses words or phrases that coordinate with definitions. For example,
"yellow, red, orange" is "warm colors". It does use the bingo letters. I
made it on Publisher so it looks better than my first game. It would be
more of a review than an introduction.
