SIXTH GRADE - LESSON PLAN 1
|Students will discover new ways to add color and style to their drawings. Color and Texture are two of the elements being reinforced in this lesson.|
Materials and equipment:
|• 8" x 10.5" art paper provided by Art to Remember • Pencils, erasers, colored fine point markers.|
|• Artwork previously completed by teacher and/or students. Lots of resource pictures that students can reference when they begin their preliminary sketch. If the students are using stuffed animals as subject matter, they could bring their favorite animal from home to make the product more personal to them.|
Step 1: The student will sketch his or her animal or other subject matter on the white paper drawing large enough to fill the paper.
Step 2: After sketching the picture with pencil, the student will use fine point markers to “color” the picture using small circles next to and touching each other. Do not begin randomly. Work in small sections. Don’t forget the background!
Step 3: Print student’s name legibly at least an inch from the edge of the paper so the name will not be lost in printing.
