Anyone got any ideas for teaching art to year 8's?
This is an unsual post, I know. I'm currently studying a double degree at uni in visual arts and education (teaching) and next week we have to go to a local highschool and take a half-hour lesson with a small group of students.

The teaching group i'm in consists of me and two of my friends and we've decided to do a lesson on art since were the only education students in our class studying art as well.

our idea at the moment is we would like to teach a group of year 8 students about the 7 art elements, which are:

line
tone
shape (2d object)
space
colour
texture
and form (3d object)

were trying to come up with something fun to do with these topics, like, a game or something, like say, matching the words up to what they mean, but I cant really think of anything interesting... would be cool to do some sort of practical exercise...

anyways... does anyone have any sort of ideas? I don't really expect you to, but anything would be helpful!

Ahhh, art. Shadow you would be good a teaching them that! Big Grin Wink
They could do a few lines about what each mean and maybey draw a picture containing at least 3 of those things.
Thats all I know really. Sounds fun Shadow and I can't think of a better job for you.

Ah, sorry, I can't think of anything. Usually I'm good at coming up with a kooky idea or two, but I don't know enough about art to think of a clever activity, besides just drawing. Sorry!!!

Make them draw a Mario ^^

But seriously, what about getting them all to draw 2 pictures the same on little cards, and then playing "snap" with the class or something, this could be more of a little fun exercise at the end maybe since I don't know how much time you could spend creating 2 images and playing snap Tongue

Don't forget my suggestion of bringing in some freddo frogs as bribery either!
