This art sub lesson may also be taught by art teachers or classroom teachers.You don't need an art degree to lead a class through this. The goal of the lesson is to have the students use their imaginations to create an original type of cuckoo clock.
The lesson begins with an introduction to the cuckoo clocks of the Black Forest in Germany. Students are led through a brief history of the clocks and then shown a variety of examples. There are traditional cuckoo clocks; a fine art cuckoo clock by the artist Stefan Stumble; commercial cuckoo clocks; and imaginative cuckoo clock drawings by students. During the work part of the lesson, students will draw an imaginary cuckoo clock of their own design.
This is a PowerPoint that may be used in two ways. It may be printed out and shown page by page to the students or shown as a projected PowerPoint. It was written as a sub plan for an art class, but could certainly be used by an art teacher or classroom teacher.
The supplies needed are simple. The student will need paper, pencil, crayons or markers.
This lesson is written so that the teacher may teach completely by following the prompts in the slides. It is easy enough to be used by anyone, but still interesting enough to engage an elementary age student.
