Lesson Four Integrated Concepts Language Arts: author’s purpose, poetry, descriptive language, parts of speech, reality and fantasy, compare and contrast, Social Studies: symbols, myth Mathematics: symmetry, pattern Visual Art: composition, shape, color, space, folk art
What do you see in this artwork? Look very carefully at all the details. What things are whole? What things are only part of something else? What things are made by combining parts? How are things arranged? Is the arrangement like real life or is it more like a pattern or a design?
What is the artist saying in this work? What is the main idea? Is this image fact or fantasy? Support your answer. Does it tell a story (a narrative)? Can you tell the setting of this artwork? Who or what are the characters in this artwork? Are they ordinary people and animals? Where else would we find these characters?
What do you notice about patterns, shapes, symmetry, repetition and space? What shapes are repeated? Is there a line of symmetry? Is there a background? What colors do you notice? Is there a lot of space between the shapes or are they crowded?
What is the artist’s purpose in making this work of art? Is she giving us information? Is she entertaining the viewer? Is she showing us how to do something? What other purpose might she have?
Take a few minutes and examine this image carefully. Pay attention to the details. What do you notice about: Composition (the arrangement of the image) Shapes Individual images Space Realism and fantasy
Now, let’s look at the two artworks together. What do you notice? Compare and contrast: –Use of color –Kinds of shapes –Use of space –Composition (the way the image is arranged) –Scale (the relative size of objects)
Is the artist’s purpose the same in both artworks? What message do you think the artist is sending with these artworks? Can you predict how the artist feels about nature by looking at the natural images in her pictures? Are these artworks more like stories or more like poems?
How could you write a poem about these images? What are some nouns you might use? What verbs or action words would fit these images? What adjectives or descriptive words might help you tell about these images? What are some possible titles? Could you make your poem into song lyrics?
How do you think these pictures were made? What materials were used? –Paint, crayon, colored pencils? –Paper, canvas, wood? How large do they seem? How long do you think it took the artist to create each one? –Do you imagine the artist finishing them all at once or working over many days? Would you like to try making an artwork like these?
