This lesson is meant to follow my INTRODUCTION TO CONTOUR LINE lesson or students should have an understanding of how to use contour line prior to beginning this lesson.
In this project students use contour line to create several contour drawings using the included photos as a reference. They take the drawings and trace one of their favorites onto watercolor paper and have it extend outside of a frame to add dimension. Next, they experiment with watercolor and pattern to add interest and personality to their design. Included are teacher instructions, tips and suggestions for each stage of the project, 33 different reference images of succulents and plants in PDF form for students to draw from, a video demonstration showing how to set up the paper, transfer a contour line drawing, and add watercolor and pattern. This is a great introduction to watercolor and is a perfect project to get students to loosen up and think outside of the box.
This lesson is also offered with the INTRODUCTION lesson and the following bundles. Bundles are a great way to get a lot of resources at a discounted price.
Uploading my resources to Google Classroom is a great way for students to access them from their own devices all the time. If you are interested in learning how to upload this lesson to Google Classroom so your students can access all handouts, presentations, videos, worksheets, photo references, and examples from any device at any time, check out my resource on how to use Google Classroom in the Art room. All of my lessons are formatted so they can be easily uploaded and shared with your classes digitally. This is great when you teach multiple levels or if you want to save time repeating instructions when students are absent, in ISS, or home instruction. Just like anytime you try something new getting started can be scary but once you learn it it becomes second nature. Using Google Classroom for Art has been life changing for me. In this product, I walk you through step by step how to get started and give you tips and ideas to make your lessons go smoother.
