Guest Student Art Teacher at Los Feliz Charter School for Art
<< Art Integrated Lesson: Explore Mark-Makings Using Everyday Materials >>
Grade Level: K-1
Class length: 40 minutes
Objective : With an emphasis on overlapping, students make abstract paintings using tools such as forks, spoons, and cups to explore different kinds of markings. Each new marking (with a new tool) is done with a different color. Outside the art class, students have been studying texture and recyclable materials. The lesson lends itself to the exploration of texture through the use of various tools and objects.
