This lesson complies with many ELA Common Core Standards.
This lesson is an art history study of Alexander Calder which includes information about the artist and a detailed lesson on how to create the painting "Spiral Magnitif"
EACH lesson I offer has an art history lesson about the artist and CLEAR STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS WITH PICS OF THE SUPPLIES
I offer variations within the lesson on how to teach pertaining to age group and level of difficulty. I give you clear step by step instructions WITH PHOTOGRAPHS on how to prep for the lesson, the amount of time needed to prep and the steps to take to make this a one or two day lesson. I give you a CONCISE checklist upfront of the materials you will need.
I have taught all of the lessons in community centers with mixed age classes, both with and without the books
