THE GRADE 7 MUSIC & ART UNIT IS COMPLETE!
I could not be happier with their results.
To see the entire process you can view previous posts HERE.
The students then had 4 classes to put together 4 small videos. They could choose their tools from: Greenscreen, animation, stop motion, Explain Everything to iMovie.
They were required to:
- Introduce the task and summarize the steps involved.
- Analyze their art whilst applying the elements and principles of art.
- Compare and contrast their work to three of the six artists we studied.
- Discuss their strengths and weaknesses.
Their paintings were assessed based on their video explanation, colour choices and use of paint techniques studied in class. This was a HUGE but super fun project.
However, next time I would offer more student choice rather than saying they have to create a video.
The videos are currently being played outside the library with their painting display. They will also be playing on a loop during our art party. Now that all the hard work is done I am so incredibly proud of the quality of work the students created from the painting to the video explanations.
AWESOME work grade 7!
