LESSONS INCLUDED IN ART AND MATH COURSE

Our Art and Math courses focus on how art and math intersect. Including perspective, parallel lines, proportion, and more.

Parallel Line and Perspective 

National Art Standards:
Creating: standards 1, 2, 3.
Presenting: standard 4.
Responding: standard 7, 8, 9.
Connecting: standard 10-11

Lesson: 1 Point Perspective

Goals and Objective:
Students learn about parallel lines, discuss where they see parallel lines around them and what type of objects have parallel lines. Students will be look at photos of roads, railroads, etc,  that show how parallel lines appear to meet in the distance.  The artist will lead the students through the process of  how to draw parallel lines to one point on the horizon line. Students will demonstrate their understanding by drawing a landscape that has several items that have parallel lines such as roads, fences and streams.


Informal Measuring Tools 

National Art Standards:
Creating: standards 1, 2, 3.
Presenting: standard 4.
Responding: standard 7, 8, 9.
Connecting: standard 10-11

Lesson: Proportions/Informal Measuring Devices

Goals and Objective:
Students will learn about basic informal measuring devices that can be used when drawing.  The students will learn how to compare one part of the object they are drawing to another part to get everything in the right proportions.  Students will be shown a drawing of the human body.  Students will be shown how the human head can be used as a measuring tool to get the rest of the human form the right shape.  Students will demonstrate their understanding by completing a human figure drawing.


Using Tools to Draw Circles

National Art Standards:
Creating: standards 1, 2, 3.
Presenting: standard 4.
Responding: standard 7, 8, 9.
Connecting: standard 10-11

Lesson: Rose windows/circles/using compasses and protractors

Goals and Objective:
Students will learn about circles and how to draw them using a compass.  There are many art forms that use a circular shape; rose windows are just one example.  In a rose window or “wheel window” the circle is broken into equal sections.  The students will look at photos of rose windows, discuss how they are divided, then using a compass will draw a circle and divide the circle into a minimum of 6 sections.  They will color the circle with a variety of shades using color pencils,
