Middle School Lesson Ideas - Elements and Principles

Greetings Middle School Art Teachers,

I am "testing" this theme page.
MIDDLE SCHOOL IDEAS: Elements and Principles of Design

LeAnn got it started last summer. If it is to remain on the site, I would
like for it to have more examples. If no one sends in ideas and images, I
will simply move LeAnn's idea to the lesson page for Middle School
motivators. This looks like an easy one to motivate the "I Can't Draw"

Send a brief blurb and image to me OFF LIST. None of these need to be
complete lesson plans (unless you already have one written). I would like
for there to be some art history reference, too.... I will eventually add
hyperlinks on the page to the art history resources.

I will add ideas as they come to me. This page answers a need of my survey
respondents last summer. If this one takes off - I'll do one for elementary
and one for high school. Maybe we don't need more lesson plans? Maybe we
only need a spark of the idea? Folks can write their own lesson plans...I am
finding more and more that many art teachers do not have to write lesson
plans (lucky you).
