Teach children to draw
The Easter break drawing tranning
Before the Easter break, I was very busy at school with preparation for St. Patrick’s Day, 1916 Celebrations and Easter work so I didn’t get to touch on Spring as much as I would have liked to.
Strand Unit: Making drawings; Looking and responding
experiment with the marks, lines, shapes, textures, patterns, and tones that can be made with different drawing instruments on a range of surfaces
explore shape as seen in natural and manufactured objects and become aware of the shape of shadows cast by objects
draw from observation
look at and talk about his/her work, the work of other children and the work of artists
Resources: colored card, googly eyes, scissors, glue sticks, pencils for drawing, wool, lollipop sticks, sellotape in case the glue doesn’t work :)
Template Art is very appealing, and can be a great crutch for those who are a bit scared of teaching art!! I’ve spent the last few years moving away from template art and the results have been fantastic!! I was working for a company that is presented by the site samples.edusson.com/critical-essay/ for which I was writing critical essays that are essay examples from professional for students - it wasn't so creative job like this - like the job, about which I write at this post! Then after this job I have spent years on art! The children really are capable of a lot more then we give them credit for. Have confidence in your own abilities to teach a successful art lesson without using templates. :)
So I showed the children a picture of these chicks and we focused on line and shape. We came up with some success criteria.
Draw an egg(make sure to encourage them to make a decent sized egg :) )
Draw a chick that would fit behind the egg.
Using different types of line, design and fill your egg.
Cut out your egg.
Cut out your chick.
Create a beak (draw a diagonal) for your chick and eyes if you don’t have googly eyes.
Assemble your chick and add hair if you so wish.
Here are the finished pieces!!
I just used a colored card, I didn’t have any foam and the kid's results were brilliant. I also bought all my glue sticks, paper, wool and googly eyes in Mr. Price. It’s a great value and Irish owned. :)
Before the Easter break, I was very busy at school with preparation for St. Patrick’s Day, 1916 Celebrations and Easter work so I didn’t get to touch on Spring as much as I would have liked to. So I decided to do some work on it this side of April!
