This Neuro Doodle art lesson is inspired by Neurographic art and is great for teaching mindfulness in the art room. This design project is perfect for middle or high school art classes and is excellent for distance learning.
The Google Slideshows and video demonstrations are easy for students to access and are perfect for when students are absent or miss the demonstration.
Students learn about line quality and experiment with different line weights. They are encouraged to experiment with layering a variety of art mediums to create both unity and balance in their designs. This lesson is excellent for introducing the elements and principles of design and exploring color theory.
Felt tip black markers, watercolor, colored markers, and colored pencils were used in the demonstrations but any other materials can be used too.
Included in this project is:
A Google Slideshow with step-by-step instructions explaining how to begin the design
A video demonstration explaining the process of creating the design
A second Google Slideshow explaining how to add color and layer mediums to create balance, unity, and interest in the design
A second video demonstration showing how to add and layer analogous colors to create unity and balance
Two handouts with QR codes and links to the videos and slideshows
A printable color wheel
A rubric for easy grading
