- Before we get started, I thought Id let you know a little
bit about who I am standing up in front of you. My
names Miss. Welch
- I am actually a teacher intern, doing a four month
practicum with the University of Lethbridge,
- Therefore, I am also new to this school as well, so were
in this together learning about how everything works!
I will be teaching you math until Christmas and Art
option for those in art this term
- I have taught, Grade 2, Grade 5 and Grade 9,10,11& 12!
But never Grade 6! So Im excited to see how this goes!

Discussion on Classroom atmosphere & Sketchbooks


So to start off todays class, I thought it would be nice to watch a
little inspirational art video to get us excited to be in ART!
- I am going to try and find an interesting art video once a week
to share with the class, to help broaden your view of the art world
and realize that art is more than just drawing and painting!
(Show clip)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ATMxZySlSM - by
Alexa Meade (3D 2D) This one has words along with it
BUT has a lady in her bra and underwear standing on a
scale ask TA if this is okay to show if not show the
other one without words, and than give students
background information afterwards!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GaJmRRBt6Xk - Alexa
Meade (3D- 2D Art) Shows a lot of the process

This artist paints actual humans into 2D works of


Art

Paints 3D installations and renders them 2D in our


eyes

What looks like a 2D portrait is actually a human


covered in acrylic paint

15 mins

Trompe Loeil is a style of painting making 2D


representations look 3D She does the complete
opposite!
Becomes an optical illusion
Painting the background and clothes could take
her up to 8-120 hours
Takes about an hour to paint on the model
She takes photos of her work to finalize the 2D
look

- How many of you actually want to be here, hands up! How many of
you just really dont think youre an artist?
- Give students a little motivation for being in the art classroom:

I believe every single person is an artist in his or her own way

Might not be through drawing or painting might express


your creativity differently

Im here to help you figure out what style you prefer, and give
you the opportunity to be creative!

I will try my best to provide fun and innovative project that


appeal and interest you! I am always open to ideas as well!

At the same time I am still required to teach you the


fundamentals of art to help build an art foundation for you!

- Hand out course outline


- Explain how it is to be taken home to your parents and is
the guideline for this class
- Highlight to students the assignment area and bring up
some of the main points!
Policy on assignments
- You will always be given class time for a major
assignment as well as mini assignments or pervious
information that helps prepare you for your project
- If you dont think you will finish an assignment in time
come in at lunch (but you should have enough time if
you use your time wisely)
- Once your assignment is handed in and recorded for
marks, you are always able to re-work on it and re-hand
it in afterwards (On your own time)
- If you dont hand in your assignment or it is incomplete,
you have to stay in at lunch until it is complete if you
never do it, you will get a poor mark
- I really want to show off the art once it is complete in
the bulletin boards, but if at any time you dont feel
comfortable with that please let me know and I wont
include yours!
*Highlight the point on sketchbooks and go into detail on
sketchbooks! (Hand out at end of discussion)
- Each class they will have 10 minutes at the beginning to
work on an art sketchbook activity from the list provided
- After the 10 minutes is up please, neatly put your
sketchbook away on the shelf (The sketchbooks will be
kept in the classroom)
- Have fun with it and put your own personal touch to it,
but dont be sloppy
Hand out sketchbooks and checklists, have students tape in their
lists & write their name on the side of the pages (Pass around a
roll of tape)

Activity/Activities

Give the students the heads up that they will be


personalizing their sketchbook next class as well as
introducing themselves to the class than
Create a figure!
- Fold a white piece of paper in three
- Top section is the head (One person draws)
- Middle section is the body (Another draws)
- Bottom section is the feet (And another draws)
- Open it up and its a new creature (One person names it
and shows it to the class!)
- Now to spice it up a bit for the final 10 minutes of class
I thought wed do a fun little art activity!
- Im going to hand out a white sheet of paper to each
student. You are going to fold it in three horizontally.
* Top section is the head (One person draws)
- Pass it on to the next person (They cant look at what you just
drew!)
* Middle section is the body
- Pass it on to the next person (Still not looking at what has been
done before you!)
* Bottom section is the legs/feet
- Finally pass it on to one more person, this person gets to open
up the creation and give it a name. They than can present it to the
class!
- If we have time we can do a couple! I can hang them up in class
if you like!
* Hang them up as a reminder that its okay to create silly looking
art! Its okay to go against the grain and design something unrepresentational, as long as effort has been put in and it isnt a
sloppy careless decision
(Gauge how long it takes the students to do one section ~ maybe
2 minutes?! Have them switch accordingly)
Closure
Thank the students for:
- Being patient during the required introduction lecture
time (Reassure them that will be the longest they will
have to sit and listen in an art class!)
- I will ask the students to flip over their white sheet of
paper and state one thing they wish to learn or do in art
6!
I will come around and collect the sheets! And they will be
free to go once the bell rings
Next class will be creating a personalized title page in our
sketchbook as a way to introduce you to the class!

Time

Have printed off Zen-tangles for students to trace over or color on! (Since
they are so popular at the moment!) They can cut these out and put them in
their sketchbooks if they like or look at them to draw it themselves

Reflection
Sept. 6th - This was my first class with the students so I was definitely nervous and I could tell! I was rushing
once I got talking, and was trying to remember all the points I wanted to cover. If I were to do an intro again,

I would write the agenda on the board so I can relate to it throughout my talk. I think this would help calm
me down and process my thoughts when I get flustered! Usually I dont need it but on my first day now I
know I do! I also felt like I might have been too casual with the students. I didnt want to stress them out
since it was their first day of Grade 6 but I do think I could have been a little more professional. Therefore, in
the afternoon classes I made a point to being more proper! This class also showed me how young this grade
really is! There were little details that they would ask questions on that I just assumed they knew! This was
good to realize early on that my instructions need to be completely broken down!

Time

Learners are engaged with the teacher during side discussions


(eye contact, head nods, etc.)
Respectful and mature behavior during work period time.
On task when given time to work on sketchbook assignment.
Transition to Body: Getting organized with sketchbook
Activity 1: Discussion on how to express oneself through
materials and color
Activity 2: Sketchbook Activity Work Period
Closure: View the work students have done so far!
- Students arent allowed to leave classroom until sketchbooks are
put away in their proper location & art room is tidy (Extra time
spent on clean up in the first week to emphasis the importance of
it throughout the semester)
As students walk into the class music will be playing and the
PowerPoint with examples of title pages will be showing. On the
board it will say Please take your sketchbooks from the shelving
unit and take a seat
- This will shift the students into preparing for the daily
sketchbook activities that they will usually do at the
beginning of class. They need to take the responsibility
to get organized without me constantly instructing them
to. I shouldnt have to say anything and the students
should no what to do and get working! I will even
state that once the students get started working!
(Whether it went smoothly, or if there was too much
chatter! Etc.)
- Once students have their sketchbooks I will explain how
normally they would have 10 minutes to work on one of the
activities from their sketchbook checklist but today we are going
to create a title page for our sketchbook before we add anything
into it!
Body
Sketchbook Title Page Activity & Instructions (Small PowerPoint
to go along with!)
- Discussion on how to express oneself through materials and
color
Explain how the first activity for their sketchbook activity will be
their personalized, custom title page.
- This title page will be a visual representation of who you
are.
- Each student will be unique and different to the student
beside them and thats okay.
There is one requirement in this title page:
- There has to be some form of name (Initials, nickname,
full name, just last name)
The rest can be up to you
- Something you like (puppies, coffee, ocean)
- An activity you do (Kayaking, camping, working out)
- Family (Val, Dave, Astrid and Tigger)

10 mins

- Personality/Characteristics
- Favorite quote/lyrics that connect to you
- Can be abstract/representation
- ASK students if they know what these two words mean!
Abstraction can show who you are through the use of materials,
stylistic choice and colors the way it looks makes you feel a
certain way
- Ask students to consider the color they are using and if it
is reflecting who they are (Yellow - Sunny, Happy,
Bright, Positive, loves summer)(Maybe blue is your
favorite color so youre going to have circles of blue
throughout your title page cause you love the color and
the ocean!)
I will than show some examples on my PP, highlighting some
elements that are powerful within the examples!
- Pointing out use of color
- Placement of ideas
- Ways to represent words
- Full page cover
- I will emphasis that students should embrace their skill level
I want them to be positive about the artwork they are creating. We
are all at different skill levels and thats okay as long as we are
challenging ourselves!
Show students were my special materials are for them to use, also
highlight how I have scrap paper for them to practice on before
creating their good copy title page if they want! (Not required
mainly if they are using new material, such as oil pastels, chalk
etc.) Encourage students to use materials that they arent used
to, have them practice on a sheet of paper to see how the material
makes marks before applying it to their title page! (Ex. Charcoal,
Oil Pastels, Wax Crayons, Paint)
- Show a demonstration of practicing experimenting with
materials quickly
* One quick note! You will be presenting your work to your class
as a way to introduce yourself! So whatever you add to your title
page, make sure it connects to you in some way!

Closure
Hold up some of the students sketchbook title pages for the class
to see! Always ask students first if it is okay if you can show
the class point out areas that are good ideas to help stimulate
others!
Always thank the students if they have worked hard and created
a positive working environment!
Next class will be a full work period to complete this title page!
Have students put away sketchbook and materials before the bell
rings. The students can only leave the classroom once it is tidy!

Time

Have printed off Zen-tangles for students to trace over or color on! (Since
they are so popular at the moment!) They can cut these out and put them in
their sketchbooks if they like or look at them to draw it themselves

Reflection
This class went very well. My students actually ALL want to be in the
art class, which I feel like is going to make each project a lot more
enjoyable! The examples were extremely important! I realized every
example I showed some student would end up mimicking it! Therefore,
I was happy I had so many examples, but I wished I even had more! I
want to get in person examples as well next time! It reminded me to
do each activity before having the students do it, that way I do have an
example! This class I also realized that my projects could be
challenging, because these students WANT challenging, interesting art
projects! They also said they want to learn all the fundamentals! This
was good to know because Im going to change the focus from project
base, to more of a material, skill based (with projects as the final goal).

(During this work period I need to check the progress of the


students, if they are working hard and need more time I will give
them another class. If most of the students are complete, and the
others have wasted their time not working, we will move on, and
those students will have to finish theirs during their sketchbook
activity time allotted at the beginning of class.)
Sketchbook Title Page Presentations
- Each student will introduce themselves to the class by
presenting their representational title page. They will go
through why they have included each element to their
page, the subject matter, use of material, color, name,
and any extra features.
- Once a majority of the class is done I will ask for volunteers to
present their title page to the class! (If no one volunteers Ill use a
random selector online to pick students!)
- Remember, whenever someone is presenting information,
especially personal information make sure to be respectful. What
does it mean to be respectful? (Eye contact, quiet, listening,
positive comments, an open mind!)
- We will all have different art outcomes and thats the best part
of art! We are all learning and growing artistically together!

Reflection
Students havent gotten to the presentation part of the lesson yet. They have all agreed that they want to
show their work with their classmates though! The sketchbook pages they are creating are amazing! It
really showed me to set my standards for them high. Its different than in math were I have to slowly work
up, here they are all in class bagging to learn and be taught how to draw! I think for my PIP I will start an
art club at lunch just because everything these students want to learn Im not able to in one semester! This
class I also realized that my morning art class would be behind my afternoon class no matter what! They
are also much quieter and work at a slower pace! I may need to motivate them a bit more!
**** ADD IN where appropriate
Behavioural guidelines (3 strikes youre out)
- One verbal warning
- Two name on board (Stay in at lunch and do homework)
- Three check mark Principle Office - Serious sometimes can skip right to four if the situation is
unacceptable (fightetc)
- Students are able to have their name erased from board if they are good for the rest of the class
- Privilege of having no seating plan for the first week to see how it goes if it doesnt work out I
will make one! (For math there will definitely be a seating plan)
Gauge students attitude toward the mini lecture on rules, try and make this part an enjoyable, respectable
time where students dont feel threatened but realize I am serious. Sometimes I come off too soft, and too
much of a push over. But I want to set these rules up right from the beginning so I can use them and follow
through with them, creating a respectable environment.
