The musings of a landscape painter, art teacher, and art history lover
When my art students were all home, quarantined due to the Coronavirus. I started working with them online, creating lessons that they could do at home without much guidance or many art materials. The first assignment I gave them was an art packet that explores the elements of art and principles of design. with several pages of easy assignments. I have placed that packet in this post hoping that you will find it useful.
While this lesson was intended for middle school age children, it will work well with both younger and older students. As they work through the packet, they will improve their understanding of how to use the various elements of art to make better compositions and develop an appreciation for the visual language of art. Students will will work with shading techniques, texture, color, and value. The packet is fun and easy to follow and should take about 45 minutes to 2 hours per page.
I hope you find these lessons helpful. I have been an art teacher for over 24 years, teaching middle school and high school students, and I am happy to share my lessons with the community. These lessons and images are meant for educational purposes and are a free resource.
