Art Inspiration: Pastel Hearts

  For my 250th post I would like to share one of my lesson plans I did during my practicum.  They are the younger primary but I wanted to do something that was different and challenging with them. I got a suggestion to use different drawing mediums such as pastels. It was near Valentines Day and so I decided to incorporate a lesson with warm and cool colours. Below are the learning goal, what I want them to learn and the steps to be taken for the lesson.

 

Learning Goal (student perspective): I want to learn to use warm and cool colours to create a drawing with pastels. I want to use the warm and cool colours to make the areas I colour look different.

(Student perspective) I am successful when I can …

“use only warm colours in one area and cool colours in the other.”

“draw different wavy horizontal and vertical lines to make sections that I can colour.”

‘trace the heart shape to have different areas for warm and cool colours.”

Resources/Materials:

Craft Supplies – pastels, construction paper, desk covers, pencils, three heart-shaped tracers

iPad – with the PowerPoint of the lesson

Minds On: How will I engage the learner?

Use the puppet George to ask them about warm and cool colours. Have George show images of warm and cool colours in the iPad. Have George show his drawing and ask the students to see the warm and cool colours.

Action: Step-by-Step

  1. Draw three horizontal wavy lines going from one end of the paper to the other.      
  2. Draw three vertical wavy lines going from one end of the paper to the other.
  3. Trace a heart using one of the heart stencils.
  4. Decide if you are going to colour the inside of the heart using warm or cool colours. Colour the outside of the heart with the opposite.
  5. Colour between the lines using warm or cool coloured pastels.
  6. After you colour the entire page trace over the lines using a dark colour (black)

 

Below is the PDF Presentation I used with the students.
