Indicators

  • Use regular and irregular shapes from paper and cardboard and assemble these in a variety of ways by overlapping, repeating, layering patterns, gluing and sticking to create a piece of art.
  • Use digital media (PlayStation Wand) to apply digital paint to a shape.

 

Introduction:

1. Use digital media (PlayStation Wand) to apply digital paint to a shape: Connect the PlayStation move and continue to turn on ‘Start the Party’. Select the game ‘Picture This’ and demonstrate effective use of the game whilst describing key elements of your actions. Allow students a chance to use the wand to create a piece of art. Ask questions about what they are doing and allow students to tell you what colour paint is being used. Encourage students to stay within the lines. When the piece of art work has been completed allow students to describe their finished work and praise their efforts.

 

Exploration:

1. Making Shapes: Prepare examples of 2D shapes made from a range of materials (e.g. paper, cardboard, paint) in different shapes and sizes. Discuss with students the different ways you are able to create these shapes and what materials you will need. Each student will be given the opportunity to select an animal from those found in ‘Picture This’. In groups or individually students will make a range of shapes related to this animal. To create triangles, circles, squares, rectangles etc, the students will: rip, cut, paste, paint and colour.

 

2. Creating Art: Begin with the IWB activity which allows students to use shapes to create an animal based on those represented in ‘Picture This’. Using shapes the students have made in the previous lesson, give students the opportunity to create their selected animal. 

 

Conclusion:

Allow students time to display their creations. Use simple words to describe those shapes found and what methods the students used to create their artworks e.g. cut, rip or paint.
