Creating a Visual Arts SLO is a time-consuming task! Save time by purchasing this classroom-tested Visual Arts SLO that is ready to go. Since it’s completely editable, simply add your own specific information, print, and DONE!

The best part about this Form, Space, and Balance Visual Arts SLO is that you can use any of your favorite lessons to teach the objective. Since this SLO is based on form, space and balance, use your favorite lessons/projects to teach form, space, and balance vocabulary.  This SLO will work with any of your projects with form, space and balance as the main elements of art.

The assessment for this Form, Space,and Balance Visual Arts SLO comes in two parts. For part one, students are required to draw a picture of a place that is special to them. This fits in perfectly with the fifth grade National Visual Arts Core Standards. For part two, students will write a descriptive paragraph about their drawing. In each part, students are given a word bank of vocabulary terms. Students will use this word bank (types of form,space, and balance) to create the drawing and complete the descriptive writing. They receive points for each art term they applied in their drawing. Students also receive points for using the art terms correctly in their descriptive writing.

Word Bank Used for This SLO: positive space, negative space, foreground, middle ground, background, point of view, perspective, formal balance, informal balance, radial balance, two-dimensional, three-dimensional, cube, sphere, depth, overlapping

GRADE LEVEL- Since this SLO aligns with Grade 5 National Standards, I have marked it as a grade 5. I have also used this SLO with students through 7th grade.

The right column of the chart in this SLO resource shows the score a student needs to make in order to reach the 35% growth goal. The formula used to determine the score needed is:

.35 (20 - Pre-Assessment Score) + Pre-Assessment Score = Target Growth Score

The final numbers are rounded up to determine the target growth score.

This document is completely editable, so you will able to change the growth rate percentage to fit your needs.

COMPLETELY EDITABLE: I have created this document in Word with a Word default font. This makes it easy to copy and paste into your own school district's template. It also makes it super easy to edit anything in the document.
