This elements and principles of art bundle includes 3 Mini-Canvas presentations that go into depth on the element of Line and Shape The first is a lesson on creating Rhythm with Line, the second lesson is about communicating Emotion with Line and the last is about creating emphasis through the use of geometric shape compositions.
The first lesson teaches students how to create rhythm, pattern, variety and movement in line designs, using Zentangle patterns as a jumping off point. Students will create thumbnail designs, use those thumbnails to create a final design on their first composition and then self-evaluate based on the criteria of rhythm, pattern, variety and movement.
The next lesson probes further in the communication of visual arts by having the students create line designs that convey an emotion. The presentation takes them through line animations and design examples that communicate feeling. The students then create 4 thumbnails with worksheet provided based on four emotions, re-create their best emotion design onto the final composition and evaluate themselves on how well they were able to convey the emotion in their designs.
The final lesson describes the element of shape and the principle of emphasis through the use of artist's work and how they create emphasis in their work. Students will create thumbnail designs each showing emphasis using a different method; Placement, Direction/Movement, Size and Color. They will then use those thumbnails to create a final composition cut from paper. Students will self-evaluate based on the criteria creating emphasis using the 4 methods described above.
