Description: This app lesson develops students’ art analysis skills, creativity, and art genre knowledge.
Instructional Objective: Students will research a work of art/style/genre and demonstrate their understanding of the nuances of that art by creating their own piece inspired from their research. Students will then write an analysis of how they implemented the researched style into their creative piece and post both their art and their analysis in a portfolio website.
Step 1: Students will use the WikiArt app to view and research a particular work of art by style and genre.
Step 2: Students will create their own work of art with the Tayasui Sketeches app, utilizing the style(s) and/or technique(s) they researched. Students will save their artwork to the camera roll.
Step 3: Students will write a one-page analysis about how they implemented the style(s) and/or technique(s) of the researched art in their own piece, along with a description of the meaning, significance, and inspiration of their work using the Microsoft Word app.
Step 4: Students will add their work and commentary to their online portfolio built and hosted with the Jimdo app.
