Introduction and Motivation (Set):
2. Students will select brush sized to apply paint to the background.
7. Students cut out areas of the smaller piece of paper and glue to small pieces of Styrofoam, then glue to background painting. Students may use oil pastels to embellish their artwork.
(2) Independent Practice and Check for Understanding: Teacher circulates among working students visually recording students demonstrating understanding of objectives and provides reinforcement.
(3) Closure: Students record the emotion conveyed and the elements used to convey those feelings similar to the exemplar. They will include innovations they provided to the piece.
Level Two -- The finished Abstract Expressionistic painting shows good understanding of design concepts as well as the use of overlapping to imply depth. The painting is creative and craftsmanship is good. The student has composed a good writing component describing the emotion portrayed and the innovations provided to their piece.
Level Three --The finished Abstract Expressionistic painting shows limited understanding of design concepts and the concepts of unity and overlapping. Creativity and craftsmanship are minimal. The student has provided a writing component with limited description of the emotion portrayed and the innovations provided to the piece.
Level Four -- The finished Abstract Expressionistic painting shows a lack of understanding of the focused elements of design as well as little understanding of the concept of unity. Technical skill and craftsmanship is poor. The student has provided some evidence of a writing component describing the emotion portrayed and the innovations provided to their piece.
