The Big Idea:
Art Can be Very Personal
This BIG idea is one that makes a lot of sense to the kids as we progress through the quarter. The art of the seventh graders will always involve something dealing with the artists themselves.
The first project involves the student's name as the subject, the second includes a tracing of their hand, the third uses their initials and a fictitious company logo/sign/advertisement that they create as if it was their company. Lastly, they will learn portraiture basics in creation of a self portrait.
