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 project does need something extra: (1) burlap and (2) white air-dry clay.
Approximate Time Needed
The time needed will depend on the age group of students but usually takes approximately 45-60 minutes for the read-aloud introduction and art lesson, extra for extension activities.
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. Due to copyright infringement, some original art pieces are not included but I have listed the artist and title of the artwork. You can do a Google image search and then share with the class by projecting on a smartboard or whiteboard.
Common Core Art Standards
(5.VA:Cr2.1.5a) Experiment and develop skills in multiple art-making techniques and approaches through practice.
(7.VA:Cn11.1.7a) Analyze how response to art is influenced by understanding the time and place in which it was created, the available resources, and cultural uses.
Perfect for grades 2 – 8, homeschooling
