This is one of the final drawing based lessons I do in my advanced 2D art courses. After doing three drawing projects leading up to this in, they have an opportunity to draw with color. They are taught colored pencil techniques by using Prisma colored pencils on black paper, which creates a vibrant end result.
The students are challenged to create a work of art that reflects the topic, man vas. nature, and the art movement, surrealism. We look at work by Salvador Dali for inspiration.
See the presentation I use introduce the project to my students. The PowerPoint includes project info, step by step instructions on using colored pencils, and a quick look at artist, Salvador Dali. In addition to the PowerPoint, this also includes an in-depth lesson plan, complete with supplies, resources, implementation, a rubric, homework/sketchbook assignment, critique sheet, and national standards.
I include PowerPoint, Word docx, and PDFs of all my resources in one convenient zip file.
