Learning Objectives

  • Learn and apply an understanding of elements of art and principles of design.
  • Design and execute a 16 x 10 grid artwork using colour concrete blocks in a collaborative gallery to demonstrate an individualised understanding of elements and principles of design.

Guiding Ideas

  • How do artists use the elements of art and principles of design to construct effective compositions?
  • Where can we identify examples of elements and principles in our natural world?
  • How can we apply problem solving approaches to composition and design?

Student Activities

  • Students begin by exploring the portal zones to learn about elements of art and principles of design. Each zone has building/creative areas where students are able to apply their learning using a controlled range of building materials. Upon completion student should photograph/caption their work as evidence of learning.
  • When students have checked off a set of required photos, they are assigned a wall in the College of Art as their designated surface for an original composition. This composition should reflect their learning from the various portal zones.
  • Upon completion, students should be encouraged to respond on their learning and problem-solving approaches.

Performance Expectations

  • Students will take photos of examples of elements and principles of art based from the portal zones in the world.
  • Students will add captions to portfolio photos to demonstrate evidence of learning.
  • Students will design and excecute a 16 x 10 grid design in the collaborative gallery called the College of Art.
