Hi everyone! At the start of each art class I am having my students
draw, look at a painting, answer a question all related to art to put in
theri art notebooks, which I'll grade.
I have a few ideas but would appreciate any ideas you might be able to
add. I have elem 1-6th grades. A few I have to start off the year are:
1. list 10 things a color such as red reminds you of 2. look at Van
Gogh's Bedroom. What objects are paired? When you look at this painting
do you get the impression that the artist was a happy person with many
friends? why? What kind of mood has he created? 3. Draw your greatest
fear 4. When do you get angry and why? Draw a picture of yourself with an
angry expression 5. Draw things that float 6. Draw things with wheels
7. Draw things that roll 8. Draw things that close 9. Draw things
that come from eggs. 10. Be an ant- describe and draw what you would see.
11. If you had a candy bar named after you, what would it look like and
what would it be called? 12. If I had been a pilgrim, I would have
looked like this. 13.If you were a flower, what kind would you be? Draw
a picture of yourself as this flower. 14. Express in a drawing your
happiest moment in the past year. 15. Express in a drawing something
you are good at. 16. If I could be any color, I'd be ______ because....
17. Draw a picture of something you'd like to become better at. 18.
Using any type of lines or shapes, create a picture with only the three
primary colors.
I spend about 5 minutes or a littel more on this before I introduce
their project, which gives me time to set up my supplies and slide
projector since I don't have an art room but must go to each teachers
room and set up.
As you can see I need more ideas for them to put in their art notebook. I
sure would appreciate any new ideas. Thanks!!!!!!!!!
