In my principles of art series each student is guided through an electronic worksheet (word document) as they explore visual examples of the principles of art using the internet. This assignment is for the principle balance. Students find visual examples of different types of balance. Students compile these examples with a rationale in one file. The student presents 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.
