This lesson introduces Art nouveau, Alphonse Mucha's artwork, and teaches various watercolor techniques.
This zip file includes:
-a 31-slide powerpoint including images of Mucha's work, student examples etc.
-a THOROUGH step-by-step 4 page PDF lesson plan with procedure, prep, supply list, etc.
-an editable 2 page rubric based on the elements & principles of art
-an artist statement worksheet, asking the artist to reflect on their process
This project has specific guidelines but the subject matter is open-ended, so no two artworks look alike. My 8th graders produced some beautiful work, but this could certainly be adapted to higher grade levels.
I hope you and your students enjoy this as much as we did. If you have any questions, please ask!
