Christmas Art - Angels

(0)
A ‘Fun with a Ruler’ art project for your students to complete during the Christmas season. There are 3 different templates to create 3 slightly different angels. This project involves your students ruling straight lines between 2 dots on a template. When they have finished drawing all of the lines they can give the head some detail (hair, eyes, mouth, etc) and give their artwork some colour. Included: ♦ 3x templates – black dots ♦ 3x examples – black/white ♦ 3 x instructions ♦ Teacher notes Level of Difficulty: Your students need to be able to use a ruler to draw straight lines between 2 points (the curves are made with straight lines … it’s like magic!). The designs can look more complicated than they actually are. Concentration is required, but the actual process is not difficult. Instructions: Simple, clear, easy-to-follow instructions are provided. One instruction per page (image and a sentence). Display the instructions via a data projector if you have access to one. Otherwise print and enlarge them and/or demonstrate on an enlarged template. Equipment: You need a ruler and a pen (black works best). Something to colour with (eg coloured pencils, watercolours, felt tip markers, chalk pastels, dye, etc) Keywords: parabolic curves, math, geometry, patterns, string art, Xmas © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

The design looks more complicated than it actually is. Concentration is required, but the actual process is not difficult. A pattern is repeated 8 times. Instructions: Simple, clear, easy-to-follow instructions are provided. One instruction per page (image and a sentence). Display the instructions via a data projector if you have access to one.

Star Art - using parabolic curves

(1)
Fun With Lines. Templates to create 4, 5, 6 and 8 point stars. Draw straight lines connecting the dots on the templates and curves will magically appear … such fun! (Parabolic Curves). Included: ♦ 4x student templates – 4, 5, 6 and 8 point stars ♦ Example stars ♦ Easy-to-follow instructions (with images) The Process: ♦ Draw the lines. ♦ Colour your artwork. ♦ Cut the artwork out around the circle. ♦ Display the stars. The Instructions: I have provided 7 steps to complete the artwork. Each step is on one page with concise instructions and an image. Print them out or display via a data projector – a great way for your students to self-check and manage their own learning. (Plus it will save you from having to answer millions of “Is this right?” questions!) The Practise Part: At the bottom of each template there is a section to practise ruling the lines and getting the hang of making parabolic curves before attempting it on the actual template. The artwork looks tricky …. but it is actually very simple! Skill enhancement: ruling straight lines with precision.

Rotational Symmetry – Art activity – Maths (Geometry)

(1)
Rotational Symmetry Art Activity. This fun activity produces fantastic designs that your students will be super proud of. Each template has rotational symmetry of order 6 and is on isometric dot paper. Your students simply add more lines (ensuring each line is done 6 times to keep it symmetrical), using the dots to maintain accuracy. When your students are happy with their final design they can colour it in using symmetrical colouring. Afterwards, your students may wish to cut their design out and use it in another piece of artwork. For example, adding a stem and leaves to turn it into a flower. Plain isometric dot paper has also been provided as a basis for your students to create their own rotational symmetry design from scratch. Provided as two separate files – A4 paper size and Letter paper size. What you get: • 30 templates on isometric dot paper • Poster explaining rotational symmetry • Isometric dot paper (plain) • Teacher notes © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources
