Goal (Terminal Objective): Students will create a bas relief cartouche, in the style of the ancient Egyptians, using personal symbols to signify their names with this lesson from Sargent Art.
Objective: Students will design, sculpt, and paint a cartouche using symbols that represent the individuality of each student.
Purpose: Students will understand the symbols used by ancient Egyptian kings and use bas relief sculpture to create a personal cartouche that incorporates symbols.
New Vocabulary: bas relief, cartouche, symbols
Time: 2-3 (45-minute periods)
Introduction and Motivation (Set):
(2) Independent Practice and Check for Understanding: Teacher circulates among the working students visually recording (checklist) students demonstrating understanding of objectives, asking direct questions when understanding isn’t observable, and asking peers to critique each other. Teacher helps and reinforces students as they work.
(3) Closure: Students display their work.
Evaluation: Use teacher or class critiques to evaluate particularly strong works and strong qualities within works.
Level One -- The finished cartouche clearly expresses a strong aesthetic feeling. The cartouche displays a strong and creative use of personal symbols. The craftsmanship is excellent.
Level Two -- The finished cartouche expresses an aesthetic feeling. The cartouche displays use of personal symbols. The craftsmanship is good.
Level Three -- The finished cartouche attempts to show an aesthetic feeling. The cartouche displays some personal symbols. The craftsmanship is variable.
Level Four -- The finished cartouche does not express an aesthetic feeling. The use of personal symbols is unclear or absent. Craftsmanship is poor.
Extension: A cartouche shape could be incorporated into a slab container, with personal symbols on the lid.
