A great unit for the start of the year. This second unit explores observational drawing, repetitive graphic patterning, sponge paintwork, some 3D construction with cardboard and string, collage. This is a PDF resource consisting of 29 pages. This unit will provide a term's worth of learning as follows:
1) Develop Practical Knowledge in the Visual Arts (P.K) - Develop my observational drawing skills and Explore the use of mixed media
2) Develop Ideas in the Visual Arts (DI) - Contrast complimentary colours for effect
3) Communicate and Interpret the Visual Arts (C.I) - Share my choice of pattern and carving design
4) Understand the Visual Arts in Context (U.C) - Discuss the meaning of patterns and carving designs in Maori culture
Lessons are step-by-step and easy to follow. Contains lesson sequence, unit plan, self assessment, teacher assessment. Full colour and brimming with progress photographs.
Praise for Maori Cultural Panels: I'm not an art teacher, just a general ed. teacher, but the way the lessons are laid out with lots of descriptions and pictures makes me feel very empowered to guide my students through this piece of art. This will supplement our unit on Polynesia very nicely (from TPT customer).
Students will create a final piece of work showing a cultural panel using traditional Maori kowhaiwhai patterns and pendant carvings as reference.
