Teaching Visual for the sequential unit plan on ORGANIC SCULPTURE Shapes that have twists and turns Natural Shapes Procedural Visuals representing natural
and man made organic forms Activity 2:
Making a mood board
or a Venn diagram Resources Organic sculptures
of Chayo Frank Students can be exposed to visuals in a power point or as print outs Man Made
Organic Forms In clay Using different media In stone Resources Going on a nature walk

Activity One:
Observational contour
line drawings Artists Inspiration Activity 3:
Making Keymodels in clay
using slab method Spark and Association Resources Resources Procedural Criterion:A
Criterion:B A Few Terms Reading Material Criterion:C Criterion:D Slide Show Organic Sculpture To develop an understanding about these free shapes, students were then introduced to these sculptures of Chayo Frank. He created these sculptures by following the melodic flow of form, color and texture in detail . Children observed the complexity of compositional interrelationships between these three elements to create an organic sculpture. These are free shapes inspired by nature. A Few Terms

In-the-Round-- sculptures meant to be seen from all angles; not up against a wall.

Negative space-- the space created in art that is intended to add interest but is not subject matter.

Positive space-- the space created by subject matter in a composition.

Organic forms-- forms that look as if made by nature that can usually not be named. e.g.- amoeba, seaweed

Geometric shapes-- forms that look as if they were made by mankind. e.g.-- cubes, spheres, pyramids

Slip-- a liquid form of clay that can be used as an adhesive and to polish the surface.

Score and Slip-- the act of joining two pieces of clay by scratching both sides and adding slip Learning Process To develop their understanding of molding clay, children were introduced to slab method; adding and subtracting clay to create a round form . In addition to that they were also introduced to different hand building techniques such as modeling. We visualized our organic sculpture and discussed, how we can develop it further by using different hand building techniques. How we can create a form that should look different from all sides….? Visualization Further Explanation if needed Students will reflect on their produced work and work in process. Keymodels, visuals and reflective journal will cover the key concepts of this criterion for further analysis under the Activies: 4, 5 & 8 students will be engaged to create the DWB by using different mediums Activity: 4
Making an organic form in clay
by additive method using modeling
techniques Activity: 5
What is organic about Moore's sculpture? Activity: 6 &7
Create an organic sculpture in the style of
Henry Moore by shaping plaster and using subtractive method by applying tools and techniques Visual Aid slide show Video clip Reading Material Interview on BBC His works closer than Reality All about
HENRY MOORE Resources The Developmental Workbook Henry Moore reflects on his life
as an artist. Inspired by nature students will design organic sculptures for their garden and will reflect how do artists observe and make art about the environment around them Activity: 8

as a visual journal
