I design à la cART lessons to be completed with simple art supplies as it is difficult enough trying to cart materials from one classroom to another. This textured painting project does need something extra: forks.
Approximate Time Needed
The time needed will depend on the age group of students but usually takes approximately 60 – 90 minutes for the read-aloud introduction, art lesson, and opinion writing activity.
Read Aloud Introduction
You do NOT need any art and / or art history knowledge to teach à la cART lessons – it is all laid out for you. The read-aloud introduction introduces the artist and explains art movement and techniques pertinent to the lesson; with questions guiding student conversation.
I like using visuals to support my lessons. I have included a photograph I took of two emus while visiting Australia and a recent painting I made of an emu. You can do a Google image search and then share with the class by projecting on a smartboard or whiteboard.
Common Core Art Standards
(4.VA:Cr2.1.4a) Explore and invent art-making techniques and approaches
(W.2.1) Write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic or book they are writing about, state an opinion, supply reasons that support the opinion, use linking words (e.g., because, and, also) to connect opinion and reasons, and provide a concluding statement or section.
Perfect for grades K – 3, homeschooling
