Stage 1 – Desired Results Content Standard(s): Ceramics- Canopic Jars (coil construction) Students will be able to master one of the primary forms of ceramic construction. Students will demonstrate good craftsmanship through final appearance and construction of coil pot. Students will understand how Art History can inspire current art. Students will increase technical and critical thinking through an understanding of process, concept and application. Students will develop self-critique and evaluation skills. Understanding (s)/goals Students will understand that: -Visual design is important in a dynamic work of art -Fully thought out processes are critical in the construction of multistep projects. - Direct observation is necessary in the artwork conceptualization/construction process. Essential Question(s): -What makes a good design? -Why is design important in a 3D composition? -How does the addition of complexity aid in the success of design? Student objectives (outcomes): Students will be able to: -Understand there are different responses to a given problem. -Experiment with personal symbols and adaptation of observed objects. -Comfortably discuss and compare their work with other students. Performance Task(s): Stage 2 – Assessment Evidence Other Evidence: -Student will apply media, techniques, and processes with sufficient skill, confidence, and sensitivity that their intentions are carried out in their artworks. -Complexity/Craftsmanship -Critique -Prior Ceramic projects -Basic design knowledge -Structural understanding and application TEKS objectives: -consider concepts and themes for personal artwork that integrates an extensive range of visual observations, experiences, and imagination. -compare and contrast the principles of design, including emphasis, repetition/pattern, movement/rhythm, contrast/variety, balance, proportion, and unity, in personal artwork. -research and report on selected historical periods, artists, general themes, trends, and styles of art -create original artwork to communicate thoughts, feelings, ideas, or impressions. -use response to artwork critiques to make decisions about future directions in personal work. -evaluate and analyze artwork using a method of critique such as describing the artwork, analyzing the way it is organized, interpreting the artist intention, and evaluating the success of the artwork.
