breakdown of my Nutcracker drawing project, this time using oil pastels on black construction paper.
My large construction paper comes in 18″ x 24″ size, so I cut long narrow panels of 8″ x 24″ for each student. Each also got a cardboard template measuring 7″ x 4″.1. Following the steps shown in my diagram, the students first placed the rectangle in the middle of the black paper, and traced it with a pencil.2. Two vertical lines are drawn up from the top of the rectangle, and one horizontal to divide that shape in half.3. The bottom of that rectangle is the face, and eyes, mouth, moustache, beard and hair are added.4. Half-circles are drawn for shoulder pads, arms and hands go below.5. Two legs are added under the body, with half-circle feet for boots.6. Uniform details are drawn on the body, along with a belt.7. I had my students then trace all the pencil lines with a black pastel, and then color the body in with lots of red, black, white, and a little skin color.California Visual Arts Standard: Creative Expression 2.02.6 Use geometric shapes/forms (circle, triangle, square) in a work of art.

LESSON OBJECTIVES: LINE - talk up the value of line in art as much as you possibly can for kindergarteners.

  • Play a matching/memory game with the line cards on front board. Students stand in a circle and take turns turning the cards hoping to make a match. Play the game twice
Before students enter, have the set of matching line cards (on tray of whiteboard) layed out on the floor, face down, nuumber side up (numbers are insignificant for this game) in the front of the room. students will sit in a circle while you review content and language objectives and then stand for the game.

CONTENT OBJECTIVES:

  • Learn at least 3 art room procedures
  1. Enter and exit art room quietly
  2. Only touch art materials when using them
  3. Follow directions
review review review

LANGUAGE OBJECTIVES:

  1. What is the sound of artmaking?
  2. What is best audience behavior?
  3. Respect turns to talk.
WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8TH

FYI...I like to play a game called "my turn - your turn" with the young classes where they watch what I do when I say "my turn" and they do what I just demonstrated when I say "your turn". You may choose to use the document camera or one of the easels. Open the doc camera on the computer - it is the top left icon. A classroom teacher can help you with that.

Using the "Line" cards from the memory game, post one at a time as you ask them to draw each type of line. Each line you ask the students to draw the line with both a traditional grip and an overhand grip. Change colors of chalk in between lines or at least give that choice. Also, kindergarteners like to do their art room standing up so that should also be a choice.

LESSON OBJECTIVES:

  • Compose a study of a variety of different lines using both the traditional grip on an art tool and an overhand grip

MATERIALS: Paper is by large paper cutter or in back of room. Other drawing and coloring materials are in back of room.

Long strip of white art paper, red basket of colored chalk on each table, set of line matching cards.
