This was made by a second grader using the "space" lesson concepts. He totally deviated from the traditional landscape idea in the best possible way. This just made me smile so much.

Creative Reuse Lesson Plan   Week   7  Grade   K/1

1st Trimester Whitman ES 2009-2010  written by Keri Piehl for SCRAP

Elements of Art: space

Cost per student: $ .04

Materials: white paper, pencils, crayons or colored pencils, tape, paper printed with doors (I was inspired to do this when Scrap got in a bunch of notepads from Jeld-wen doors that looked like little doors).

Prep: I cut off the logo on the bottom of the door notepads and used cellophane tape to tape them to Xeroxed copies of a room I had drawn using perspective techniques. See picture; this does not translate well to a written description.

Students will be able to recognize the use of space in a work of art, and create a piece of art work focused on space as an attribute.

Element of art: Space

Prep: staple 2 layers of laminate to a piece of cardstock along the top, like a flip chart.

Students will be able to recognize the use of space in a work of art, and create a piece of art work focused on space as an attribute.

I work with the school’s afterschool program as a real, paid employee.  School plus afterschool sometimes ends up creating 9 hour days, which is a bit much for most people, myself included.  While the student response to art is still really positive, I feel myself lagging a little bit. I think when I get my afterschool classes on track a little more, then I will be back to a high level of teaching output, but feel like getting everything done is too much work right now.
