PHOTOGRAPHY RESEARCH PROJECT

After months of work I finally wrapped up the last of my photography projects to complete my second photo bundle. This assignment is second to last in the curriculum and challenges students to find and research modern photographers who inspire them. They are then tasked with capturing a photograph in the style of the photographer and pushed to test their Photoshop abilities by editing one of the photographer’s original images. Check it out here.

IMAGE TRANSFER HOW TO

The final project of the semester for photography is creating an image transfer of a photograph captured by the students. The base material can vary from wood to canvas, and it can have a huge impact on the overall feel of the final product. This project walks teachers and students through the process of successfully transferring a printed photograph to a different surface. Complete with handouts, PowerPoint, critique, and more. Check it out here.

PHOTO CURRICULUM – EVERYTHING YOU NEED

It felt amazing to wrap up my second photography curriculum. This includes everything you need to teach for an entire semester. Every handout, critique sheet, rubric, lesson plan, PowerPoint is included so you don’t have to plan a single day, other than pushing print on your computer. This includes 12 photography based projects, 11 critiques, 11 artist research assignments, a photographer research assignment, semester timeline, how to set up a Google Classroom and using Adobe Spark for assignment submission, and more. Check it out here.

TWO CURRICULUMS IN ONE

With the completion of my Photo II curriculum came the bundling of my Intro to Photography and Photo II curriculums. Now you can get both semester long curriculums for a discounted price. This includes everything you need to teach for an entire year of DSLR photography. There are 30 photography projects included in this curriculum pack. Check it out here.

BOOKBINDING PROJECT

I tested out a new bookbinding process, perfect bound sketchbook, to create an easy and beautiful sketchbook. The materials are cheap and the end product looks like a book you could purchase from a store. The project can be found here and this has also been added to my bookbinding bundle, if you want a variety of techniques to teach in your classes. The bookbinding bundle includes 7 different sketchbook projects.

BRANDING YOURSELF AND SHARING YOUR WORK

I am thrilled to finally share my Free Art Friday project with the art teaching community. I have been obsessed with the Free Art Friday movement for years; and I began incorporating free art based projects in my classroom last year. It has been a huge hit with my students and is a great way to put a spotlight on all the things we do in the art room. This is perfect for advanced level high school students or it can be adapted for middle school students. Read more about it here.

ARTIST INSPIRED PRINTABLE POSTERS

I am finally wrapping up my most recent project, an artist inspired alphabet. Each letter includes a different artist, who shares the letter in their first or last name. The posters come in two different styles and three different sizes, 26 different artists are included. You can easily print these out and display them for littles in an elementary setting or use them to spell out words in your secondary art room. Check out my first pack here.

ARTIST ALPHABET PACK #2

I just posted my second alphabet artist pack, with 26 more artists included. It was too difficult to select just 26, so it inspired me to create three different versions of my alphabet posters. The third version will be posted tonight and the three packs will be bundled soon at a discounted price. Be sure to follow my TPT store to receive updates when new products hit my shop.

Make sure you visit a Teachers Pay Teachers store between February 4th and 5th to get amazing products at a discounted price and help support other educators. Use the code FEBSALE at checkout!

Art Education Tools: Elements of Art Printable Poster Set

poster pic

As an art educator the elements of art and principles of design are something that is naturally incorporated into almost every lesson. They are the basics of strong, interesting, and successful works of art. From the moment kindergarteners step into their first art class until an art major in college leaves their final studio course, the elements and principles should be an underlying theme. As I sat around enjoying my time over the summer, my mind continuously drifted to thoughts of the upcoming year. I had a goal, to add some decor to my classroom, to help make it my own space and brighten it. After some brainstorming, I decided what better way than to make my own poster set. I got to work and created a poster to represent all elements of art and principles of design. Not only was it a great addition to my classroom, but it was also a nice addition to my Teachers Pay Teachers store (which I am now addicted to).

Elements-of-Art-Poster-2 copy

Although this was the very last poster I made, it is the poster I like to start off with. It showcases all the elements of art, including line, shape, value, form, texture, space, and color. I waited to the very end to make this poster because, first I wanted to determine which fonts would represent each element. Using Adobe Illustrator I added a rectangular, filled box in the middle, then laid out my text around it.  There was a lot of adjusting and re-configuring as I tried to fit the lettering in just right.

Color-Poster-Preview

The color poster was my first creation, and I am very happy with the way it turned out. I love the current triangle trend, and decided it was a great shape to use in my posters. Using the line tool in Illustrator I constructed my arrowhead, triangle shape, repeated, resized, and recolored to to represent the various color groups. Primary, secondary, tertiary, analagous, and complimentary color examples are included.

 

PrintI was excited to work on the form poster, because it was a challenge to create the illusion of a three dimensional form on a two dimensional space. Once again I used the line tool to construct my block shapes, then filled them with color. I had fun using the circle and oval tool to create the clouds in the background.  Examples of organic and geometric form are shown in this poster.

 

 

Line-Poster-Preview

Because I am so into triangle and arrow shapes, I was very inspired by the idea of line. I  used different variations of these shapes to represent horizontal, vertical, diagonal, and curved lines. I used straight lines behind the title to shape hatched and cross hatched lines, which added an interesting texture. I love the way the colors look on this poster. It is a nice contrast to the first two I completed.

 

 

Shape-Poster-PreviewAt first I was stumped by what to do for the shape poster. I decided to continue the triangle theme, to show geometric shape, but I was unsure what I could do for organic shape. After playing around with a few ideas I decided to use the brush tool in Illustrator and create a spiral shape. The geometric shapes fit nicely between the sections of spiral, which in turn made a very cohesive design.

 

 

Space-Poster-preview

Space was another difficult concept to put on paper. I knew I needed to show perspective, in order to create a sense of space, so I began adding diagonal lines and playing with shades of colors. After I create the hallway looking area I decided to add more triangles to show foreground, middle, and background. I was able to create a send of space by making the shapes smaller as they moved back. In the foreground I also include an example of positive and negative space.

 

 

Texture-Poster-PreviewI had a lot of fun making the texture worksheet. I loved playing around with the various shapes in illustrator, creating my own Mario-esque world. I used dagger shapes to represent sharp, circles for smooth, and overlapping circles for rough. The bright colors are fun and youthful. The pop of yellow works nicely with the other posters.

 

 

Value-Poster-preview

Finally, I was on my last element of art. It was time to visually represent value. Since I used triangles in so many of the other posters, I decided to do something different. I created block shapes using thick lines, and varied the color from light to dark with each block. Value scale, highlight, tint, shadow, and shade are represented in this poster.

 

 

I hope other teachers find this resource useful in my Teachers Pay Teachers shop (check it out here!). I have already printed out a set to hang in my classroom, and I love how they look.
