There's not a right answer to teaching... or teaching ART. I provide my students with a mishmash of many teaching theories.
I'm not a TAB teacher. I haven't been able to truly embrace the TAB (Teaching with Artistic Behavior) philosophy. I love the message of TAB provides and love that so many teachers use TAB wholeheartedly, but in my classroom, I embrace parts rather than all.
I'm not a Craft teacher either. I use a lot of craft to teach fine motor. I teach some lessons step-by-step for a pre-structured (ish) end result. But I don't embrace this fully either. I never want students art to look the same or tell them to use the 'right' colors, but I do give step by step suggestions sometimes.
There are some lessons that I create with my students for product and others for process and sometimes self-discovery. That is where this lesson fits in. This is an extension lesson to the self-paced, one-point perspective lesson that I introduced a couple weeks ago in a previous post (click here). This lesson is a packet that allows students to use devices to learn the steps of one-point perspective, then at the end, they get a choice. They get to choose between two lessons that each come with a video.
Today I'm offering my first extension lesson. This lesson provides two additional one-point perspective lessons. Each lesson has an image of a project sample, a QR code, and a URL link.
Again, a lot of suggestions are made in videos of 'how' to make the image, but there are also many times where I suggest using other mediums or creating a twist that makes their final product more unique.
This lesson most definitely can be used without the one-point perspective unit. You can teach your students one point perspective and use this extension for their final project. Students can still choose between the two and have 'choice'. I have tried to design these lessons so that they can be used many different ways for many teachers needs.
