Trees – Lines in art – Using the V Lesson # Date:

Name: Subject: Grade(s):


Heidi Lydersen Art 3/4split

Big ideas:
Gr 3. Creativeexperiences involve an interplay between exploration, inquiry, and purposeful choice.
Gr 4. Creative experiences involve an interplay between exploration, inquiry, and purposeful choice.
Rationale: (lesson context and reasons why lesson matters)
The use of lines in representation is valuable and this lesson focuses on the use of parallels and simple use of “V splits” on trees.
This tree representation is very different than the one the class did a couple of weeks ago when they worked on ….. Tanya –
Japanese trees?... The lesson provides for a connection with our natural local environment, a breath of fresh air and a chance to
practice and improve learned skill and technique while testing out different materials. The end gallery walk will give the students a
chance to look at everyone’s artwork and evaluate if the V technique was used and give some feedback to a sub-group of artists.

Learning Intentions Activity Assessment


Teasers and intros:
I can use simple lines to create a Outside walk looking at trees, can be a Evaluate for the application of “V
realistic looking tree using the “V brain break earlier in the day. Specific technique” (not artistic ability but
technique” objectives for investigation. evidence of technique).

I can use a natural material (wood) to Draw a tree – draw it again using Peer evaluation and feed-back
draw/scratch draw a natural element. wooden stick and soft scratch boards
Provide meaningful feedback to peers.
Prerequisite Concepts and Skill : (for student success)
None

Materials and Resources with References/Sources:

For Teacher For Students

Soft-Scratch boards. For this project each board will be cut into thirds, so one Soft scratch board
package with 10 boards (=30 pieces) is enough. Wooden stylus
Paper
Wooden stylus (sticks) for all students. Pencils
Glue
V-technique handout for overhead, support or handout. Mounting cardboard

Pictures of trees

A focus question for students when they go outside to look at trees. Since the art
lesson is on deciduous trees, it is important that students zero in on these.

Quiet music to play while drawing

Evaluation cards for students when evaluating peers

Differentiated Instruction (DI): (accommodations)


Provide writing support for the students that need it during the written feedback phase.

Extensions:
Organizational/Management Strategies: (anything special to consider?)
Time limit for outside? I like the idea of pairs visiting with the trees rather than groups to allow for reflection on
task sheet.
Any concerns with traffic?
How about O? Make sure he walks in the front end to be able to keep an eye on him better.
Class room: Make sure to have nice board paper on hand if some of the kids cannot work with the
scratching/sounds/feels of the wood and scratchboard.

Introduction (hook/motivation/lesson overview)


Art technique using V technique. Get instructions 5
Quick , Simple parallel lines and Vs. Find somebody that you can work well with
Go outside in pairs, find a tree that is not an
evergreen and make friends with it. Touch it, smell it,
give it a hug!
Go outside as a buddy team
Take a few steps back – could you climb it if you
10 (15)
wanted to?
What would make climbing it easier?
How are the branches on your tree arranged? Can
you see a V shape where the branches split? That is
our focus for the drawing today.

.
Body (lesson flow/ management)

Briefly discuss the use of the V and parallel lines


Listening, questions 5 (20)
Use for branches
Use for roots if desired

Explain what is meant by the notion of the width of the


branches equating to the width of the trunk.

If leaves are wanted - simple small lines can be used

Turn music on.

Practice technique on a piece of paper


Drawing, practicing, listening to music 5 (25)
Once students feel they are comfortable with it, have
them get a stylus and a black board to scratch on.
15 (40)
Scratching, drawing
Mount the trees on a background and put them on
display in the class room 10 (50)

Gluing, mounting and hanging

! If students need extra time for the scratching,


closure can be done the following day !

Closure ( connections within lesson or between


lessons, sharing successes, summaries)
10 (60)
Gallery walk.
Have students evaluate if V-technique was used and
give positive feedback on 5(ish) pieces of art- via
feedback card – perhaps using the math groups.

Walking, evaluating, thinking, expressing
