Lesson Plans (continued)

 

Lesson (#1)- (Adding to Your Toolbox) (1 hour and 30 minutes)

 

Objective-  Students will see examples of artists working in a variety of mediums, and then create their own art samples working in hand embroidery, layered paper collage, and gel-print printmaking. 


 

Hook (20 mins… 10 minutes, then 10 minutes) Reading at the beginning of class? Begin by introducing myself as a Practicum student, then ask students to introduce themselves with their name, pronouns, and their favorite art medium to work with. 

Teaching Strategy: Engage all students by asking them to introduce individually. 

 

Instructional Input (10 minutes) - Begin with a powerpoint…https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1_xSpl1G4TP20xypOJysi0yEsp5KpS59outm6l-vLWOA/edit?usp=sharing 

  1. Schedule of how the class will go.. 

    1. Begin with examples of artists and artwork with the 3 mediums

    2. Show quick mini skill share of each technique at three stations around the classroom

    3.  Work on art samples of each medium at different stations around the classroom. 

Teaching Strategy: Powerpoint presentation to show information and inspiration

 

Guided Practice- (15 minutes) Mini skill shares at each station. Students are asked to get out of their chairs to gather around the table to see the supplies and the set up. 

Teaching Strategy: Teacher introduces supplies and shows students hands on each skill. 

 

Independent practice- (40 minutes) students experiment with the mediums and they can create samples of each technique. They can spend however much time as they want at each station and are encouraged to explore individually and with classmates.  

Teaching Strategy: Teacher moves around the classroom to help when needed. Each station has handouts with instructions for the skill. 

 

Closure- (10 minutes) Lots of clean up to do! Have students put everything on drying rack, and in storage. Ask students how the day went for them, and to share the work they made. Then explain that the next class will be a day for them to further explore, and to relate it to their art portfolio. 

 

Materials-

Teacher supplies: Projector for presentation

 

Student supplies: embroidery thread, scissors, hoops, fabric, needles, exacto-knives, scissors, paper, cutting boards, gel-print, paper, acrylic paint, drying rack 

 

Differentiated Instruction- Students will be able to spend the amount of time they want at each station. It will be flexible, so students who do not want to focus on one skill can move on to the next one. Students will also get handouts at each station, after also seeing the skills demonstrated by the teacher. 

 

Assessment- Students will be observed during the class to see if they are engaged in artmaking and trying out new techniques. At the end of class, they will show their samples that they worked on, to show they tried out each new skill.

Lesson (#2)- (Focused Exploration) (1 hour and 30 minutes)

 

Objective- (what will the students accomplish/complete?)

 

Hook- (20 minutes), Begin with 10 minutes of reading time! Then begin by asking students what the challenges of last class were, and what they felt was successful. Students are encouraged to show examples of their samples to the class. 

Students are told to continue working with the mediums, and encouraged to combine them or start a new artwork focusing in on a new technique to continue their art portfolio concentration to add breadth. 

Teaching Strategy: Engaging class in discussion

 

Instructional Input- Instruction took place last class, today is a day to continue exploring the three art-making techniques while making a final art piece. 

 

Guided Practice- The three demos took place last class, now students will have handouts to refer back to when they begin their artmaking. 

Teaching Strategy: Continued learning from last class. 

 

Independent practice- (1 hour) Art making time. Students work on their individual explorations of the new techniques. They are encouraged to begin an artwork for their portfolio using the new mediums. 

Teaching Strategy: Independent and collaborative studio time

 

Closure- (10 minutes) Ask students how the artmaking went well for them and challenges too..  Ask students to do a gallery walk to see their work. 

 

Materials-

Teacher supplies: maybe a projector again?, same handouts from last class for skill shares

 

Student supplies: embroidery thread, scissors, hoops, fabric, needles, exacto-knives, scissors, paper, cutting boards, gel-print, paper, acrylic paint, drying rack 

 

Differentiated Instruction- Students will  have handouts and will hear instruction from the front as well. They will have the opportunity to move around or to stay in place if needed. They can combine techniques and mediums, and can independently or collaboratively pursue their creative ideas for their portfolios. 

 

Assessment- Students will be observed during the class to see if they are engaged in artmaking and trying out new techniques. At the end of class, they will show their artwork in a gallery walk.
