This is a basic principles of art and design [balance] lesson that also gets students to think deeply and creatively for their solution.
Using a 3-word series of ideas or actions, for example, "past, present, future" or "lift, spin, drop". Students will create a composition using only black and white papers to "illustrate" the word series using each of the 3 types of balance in a unified design.
Lesson Plan, start up class activities, full instructions, a printable: hand-drawn 2 page handout, and examples of my student works are included in 4 pages.
A fun, thought provoking project that has been a great success with my students!
