I'm putting together an informal report on
"Effective Teaching" for one of my courses
(specifically geared toward high school studio/fine
art - which is my goal).
Holly and All
What about teaching students art tools before a grid drawing etc....
HAVING OBSERVATION SKILLS
HAVING PLACEMENT OPTIONS
WHAT OPTIONS ARE THERE FOR FILLING IN A SPACE
GETTING AND DEVELOPING IDEAS
KNOWLEDGE AND APPLICATION SKILLS OF DESIGN BASICS
I believe that having these tools can make your creativity flow and your art
understanding say oh yes IT IS RIGHT. This gives your students confidence
Teachers how do you incorporate or teach art tools? What lesson plans do you
have for art tools? What other art tools do you teach?
After checking INSPIRATION ODYSSEY out of the library for at least 30 times
I bought it.
In Diana Wessel's book INSPIRATION ODYSSEY her chapters gives such great
information on how to develop as an artist. I believe her Ideas could be
taught as art journal exercises.
