Want your students to create meaningful artworks?
Set them up for sucess - Use this poster to remind students how to create a thoughtful art plan!
With artists designing and developing their own artworks, an important skill set includes being able to plan out the artwork ahead of time.
There are three essential elements in creating a plan - WHAT? (these are sketches) HOW? (list your materials needed) and WHY? (sentences explaining the idea - I encourage personal connections)
Help them learn to think through their ideas and problem-solve from the initial idea development stage. They will be more proud of their artworks, as they put time and energy into their unique ideas - make a masterpiece!
I utilize this method in my interpretation of a choice-based classroom, with features of TAB (teaching for artistic behavior).
