In my elements of art series each student is guided through an electronic worksheet (word document) as they explore visual examples of the elements of art using the internet. This assignment is for the elements shape and form. Students find visual examples of different types and uses for shape or form in art. Students compile these examples with a rationale in one file. The student selects 10-12 of their best examples and constructs a short 30 second Animoto video showcasing their examples and rationale. I have a few students share their product at the end. This assignment can be instructed with my other assignments as a large 'elements and principles unit', or individually to accompany element or principle focused projects.
