Art Craftivity - Elements of Design - An Art Lesson
Get your students thinking about and familiar with the elements of design with this fun 3D craftivity. This resource focuses on six elements of design:
• shape and form
There is also a blank template panel if you want to add your own element of design. Students will decorate the panels according to the element included on each page, cut out and decorate the panels, and then assemble the resource into a 3D activity, perfect for display.
This resource contains options for two different sizes – one on full sheets (great for display in a larger area and for students who need more room to work), and one on half sheets (great for smaller display areas and smaller designs). Print only the size you need. You need 6 individual panels to create the craftivity. I have included the 6 panels plus a blank template for both sizes – the blank template can be used to add your own design element, or use as a cover page in case you want to assemble the craftivity into a flip-book format rather than a 3D resource.
*** Extra student pages containing the Canadian (UK, Australian) spelling of the word “colour” are also included at the end of this resource.
A rubric is also included for formative or summative assessment.
You have three different options for printing (you want your craftivity to be sturdy enough to stand on its own):
- Print on white construction paper
- Print on cardstock
- Print on regular paper, then glue onto construction paper and cut out around shape
For easier completion, be sure students complete each page BEFORE they assemble the craftivity.
