2 …with The Elements and Principles of Design…
Think Art! I recall a specific time in my own life when I needed inspiration. I was running on the treadmill in my basement preparing for the Pittsburgh marathon and brainstorming ideas for a class assignment. I stopped, sat down on the treadmill, looked up & noticed the lines on my ceiling. At that exact moment, I made it my own personal mission to “think art” on a daily basis. I needed inspiration on how to teach the Elements and Principles of Design. I knew I needed to portray these key concepts visually and present the material in a way that inspired my audience to “think art” daily by using these fundamental concepts. …with The Elements and Principles of Design…

3 Elements of Design Line
Line is the path of a point moving through space. Shape / Form Shape implies spatial form and is usually perceived as two-dimensional. Form has depth, length, and width and resides in space. It is perceived as three-dimensional. Color Colors all come from the three primaries and black and white. They have three properties – hue, value, and intensity. Value Value refers to relative lightness and darkness and is perceived in terms of varying levels of contrast. Texture Texture refers to the tactile qualities of a surface (actual) or to the visual representation of such surface qualities (implied). Space / Perspective Space refers to the area in which art is organized. Perspective is representing a volume of space or a 3-dimensional object on a flat surface. What are the Elements & Principles of Design?

4 Principles of Design Pattern
Pattern refers to the repetition or reoccurrence of a design element, exact or varied, which establishes a visual beat. Rhythm / Movement Rhythm or movement refers to the suggestion of motion through the use of various elements. Proportion / Scale Proportion is the size relationship of parts to a whole and to one another. Scale refers to relating size to a constant, such as a human body. Balance Balance is the impression of equilibrium in a pictorial or sculptural composition. Balance is often referred to as symmetrical, asymmetrical, or radial. Unity Unity is achieved when the components of a work of art are perceived as harmonious, giving the work a sense of completion. Emphasis Emphasis refers to the created center of interest, the place in an artwork where your eye first lands.

5 Art Education then & now… Then Now
Then Teachers used primarily reproductions and posters of famous artists works to show students each concept. In the past art teachers taught these concepts by having their students create artwork that reflects famous artists and artist works. The Battle of Endor as interpreted by a famous Ewok artist. We are now using a variety of technology tools. We use the principles and elements of art and design but are making important connections with classroom curriculum. Art Education is now being integrated in all subject areas. Now

6 Think Art! “Think deeply about what you see in your everyday life” (Karla Wozniak) " One of the great things about being an artist is that it’s your job to think deeply about what you see in your everyday life, and to always question conventions and context. You are constantly looking and can’t take things for granted." (Karla Wozniak) https://www.facebook.com/theothersarahmartin

7 TPACK and Art “The 75 visual arts learning activity types are designed to help teachers plan learning opportunities that appropriately combine technology, pedagogy and visual arts content. Learning activity types can be selected and combined from the taxonomy to help students meet learning goals” (Dempsey , p. 1). Visual Arts Learning Activity Types (August 2012) – English

8 TPACK What is TPACK? Add art/creativity… What is TPACK?
“Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) attempts to identify the nature of knowledge required by teachers for technology integration in their teaching, while addressing the complex, multifaceted and situated nature of teacher knowledge. At the heart of the TPACK framework, is the complex interplay of three primary forms of knowledge: Content (CK), Pedagogy (PK), and Technology (TK)”.

9 Visual Arts Learning Activity Types
“To be effective in visual arts-related learning, technology integration strategies must align with how teachers plan educational experiences, rather than designing instruction around the use of particular technologies”.

10 Explore The 45 activity types in the Explore category are subdivided into three sub-categories.
Build Awareness and/or Conceptualize Activity Types Apply Activity Types Create/Design Activity Types (Dempsey, pg. 1) Twelve activity types provide opportunities for students to build Awareness and/or Conceptualize understandings related to visual arts. The 18 Apply activity types challenge students to apply their knowledge of the visual arts using a variety of processes and techniques. The Create/Design sub-category includes 15 activity types that offer students opportunities for creative expression. Collectively, the 45 Explore activity types embody traditional conceptions around aesthetics, art criticism, art history and production, as well as honor new and emerging media, visual culture and postmodern ideas.

11 Awareness and/or Conceptualize
Collect : Delicious Delicious: Apply Juxtapose: Photoshop & Photography Collect : Delicious.com is a free social bookmarking site which allows students to upload, collect & bookmark arts resources, artifacts, materials, works & research (Dempsey 2) Juxtapose: Students juxtapose random or intentional concepts, images and other media together from different contextual sources and/or historical periods in creating original artwork (Dempsey 5). Students create and document ideas, works of art, documents and other artifacts in sketchbook and portfolio formats (Dempsey 6).

12 Think Art!

13 New Technologies “Art education has been able to expand our students learning by making important connections to different cultures, time periods, and has also helped students explore the meaning of art and why artists create certain works to create discussions in society”. Angela Stevenson

14 Build Awareness/Conceptualize
Visualize: Students visualize imagery and recall experiences and stories; explore ideas to organize information using concept/mind mapping (Dempsey, p. 2). Pinterest is a great place to brainstorm and practice visualization activities. Above is an example of various colors and elements and principles of design. I did this activity with my 5 year old son.

15 Apply Activity Types ArtRage: www.artrage.com
We’re able to have interactive presentations where students can come to the Promethean board to work from, and instantly see a large range of work by each artist, not just the popular pieces that are made into reproductions. Apply Activity Types Interact : Students explore interactions among art concepts, text, images, media and environments individually and/or with peers through themes in art (Dempsey, pg. 5).

16 Create/Design: “she would gather her leaves”…
Publish: Students work collaboratively or individually to publish their art work for themselves, peers, or other audiences (Dempsey, pg. 7). “she would gather her leaves”… “she would climb her trunk”… I recently did a project with my 4 year old girl. She loves “The Giving Tree”. I was taking Digital Imagery with a Photography course at the same time. During the shoot, my daughter pointed to a large tree & said, “Look mom, it’s the “Giving Tree”. I have been training my mind for months to “think art”. With my Elements and Principles of Design in my pocket, along with the Instructional Technology concepts, I was able to create an authentic experience, while telling a beautiful aesthetic story. By “thinking art”, I was able to enhance my child’s learning experience. “and swing from her branches”… Visual Arts Learning Activity Types by Camille Dempsey, Judi Harris and Mark Hofer is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States License.

17 The 30 Respond Activity Types
The 30 Respond activity types are organized in three subcategories: Describe Analyze/Interpret Evaluate The Describe subcategory is comprised of eight activity types that help students to define, label and explain various types of artwork. The 17 Analyze/Interpret activity types support students in making meaning from artwork in a variety of ways. The 5 activity types in the Evaluate subcategory challenge students to critique and assess visual art. Together, these 30 Respond activity types extend the conceptions that the Explore category activity types address, but encourage more depth in reflection, response and evaluation.

20 Creativity is Critical
“When visual arts learning activity types are supported by different technologies, investigative paths to creative and imaginative thinking can be fostered, encouraging interdisciplinary student discovery… they can also serve as creative outlets that blur the lines between what constitutes tools and media used for artistic expression” (Dempsey, p. 11).
