Product Description
My Drawing students LOVE this creative project! It can easily be adapted as a painting project, as well.

We explore the prompt "Under the Surface". It could also be described as "What Lies Beneath"

In the PowerPoint, we read prompt and then view parts of artworks where the "underneath" parts have been hidden. Students take turns guessing what the blocked area is hiding. Then, when the "underneath" area is revealed, students get to see if their guess was correct or if they were way off. For example, the top of an image looks like an iceberg. Then, when the hidden part is revealed, it's actually an ice cream cone submerged in water with whales swimming around it. Students get the idea pretty quick. After several of these, the PowerPoint then shows complete artworks to provide more inspiration for students.

Students then complete the provided worksheet and begin planning their own drawings (or paintings). The provided teacher guide fills you in on all of the details.


Included:
-PowerPoint (19 slides)
-Brainstorming and sketching worksheet (PDF and Microsoft Publisher files)
-Teacher guide


My 11th and 12th grade students spent about 5-6 days total on this project, including the drawing portions. I let students choose from a variety of drawing media and they work on 12"x18" drawing paper.

Thank you!
