     Different Colours”

Brief description of lesson activity:

    Students will compare copies of artwork in black and white and in colour, discuss how different colours in artwork make them feel and compile a list of sources of colour in their lives. Students will then have the opportunity to observe colour outside and will be asked to draw the outline of one colourful object they observe. On the outline students will label the colours of the object but the picture will remain in pencil. Students will have an opportunity to discuss the objects they saw and their drawings.

    Which one they like more? Why they like it more? The impact of the colours? etc.

    3) Tell students that colour is one of the elements of art and that we can find many different colours not just in

    art work but in our everyday lives. Emphasize that the different names of the colours we see are called hues

    (i.e. yellow is a different hue than red).

    4) Ask students how they would feel if everything was exactly the same colour. Ask students to give you

    examples of colourful things in their lives that they think are beautiful and write them down on the board.

    5) Take students outside and have them draw the outline of a colourful object (i.e. flower, tree, playground, etc).

    Tell students to label the colours of the sections of their objects so they are able to colour them later (see

    example attached).

     Different Shapes and Sizes”

Brief description of lesson activity:

     Students will be introduced to mosaics. They will be shown a picture of a mosaic and will be told how it was created by the artist. Discussion will be generated surrounding the use of different shapes and sizes of objects to make art. Students will then be instructed how to create their own mosaics using the outlines they drew in lesson one (Different Colours).

Visual Art Learning Objectives: Common Essential Learning Objectives:

     i) know that shape is called an element of art communication

     ii) develop co-ordination and skills using simple critical and creative thinking

     visual art tools and materials

    iii) become aware of the variety of art works

     throughout the world and in different eras

    iv) respond to art works verbally

Assessment:

    Assessment for the visual arts mini-unit is provided with lesson plan #1.

Supplies: Resources (include Saskatchewan Arts Works

    - various shapes and sizes of ripped coloured

     paper

    - outline drawings created by students in lesson 1

    - glue

Component(s):

    Step-by-step Procedure:

    1) Show students a picture of a mosaic and ask them what they think about it. Ask students how they think an

    artist would create a mosaic.

    2) Explain how a mosaic is created and use a piece of tile or glass as a visual aid. Explain that mosaics are as

    beautiful as they are because the artist uses many different shapes, sizes and colours of materials to make

    them. Ask students what they think mosaics would look like if the pieces were all the same shape, size and

    colour.

    3) Tell students they are going to turn the pictures they drew in the last lesson into their own beautiful mosaics.

    4) Have students glue various shapes and sizes of coloured paper onto their drawing to match the colours they

    had recorded when their drawings were created.

    5) Have students share their mosaics with the class and reinforce what wonderful works of art were created

    when they used different shapes and sizes of paper.
