Research Based Strategies/Methods
Direct Teaching and Demonstration- The teacher will introduce the “zentangle” drawings and demonstrate how to create a “zentangle” drawing.

Connection to Prior Knowledge
Look around the room and begin speaking to students about all of the lines, colors, and shapes around us all the time and have them find them in the room.

Activity Expectations
Students are expected to express ideas and show creativity. Students will apply the elements and principles of design. Students will use materials, tools, and techniques with skill. Students will exhibit initiative, effort and responsibility. Students will demonstrate life skills by sharing supplies, putting supplies away. Students will cooperate to create a caring climate in the classroom. Students will persevere, use common sense, and show respect for themselves and others.

Students will view a Smart Board presentation created by Mrs. Koehler. Students will view Joan Miro designs. Students will use white paper, markers, paint, and oil pastels

Essential Question
What is an artist? Where do you find lines? Where do you see shapes? What colors do you see in the room?

This is an introduction lesson and students will be assessed over the principles of art with another unit.

The students will be given a simple assessment where they will be asked to demonstrate knowledge of the elements of art. Pre assessment and Post assessment Line Value Space Shape Form

Color Texture Borrowed from Hannah...Taking a line for a walk. Spanish Catalan painter, sculptor and ceramic artist, Joan Miro (1893 – 1983) inspired this lesson. An experimental artist who wanted to break free from traditional painting methods, Miro became associated with the Surrealist group in 1924, and was a pioneer of ‘automatic drawing’ – a technique in which the artist’s hand moves randomly across the paper, so that the resulting image is the product of chance and accident. Surrealist artists believed that by abandoning control of the mark-making, such drawings were a product of the subconscious, therefore revealing something of the inner psyche.
At this age, random mark-making comes naturally to children – in fact, the Surrealists yearned to recreate the spontaneity of children’s art. So, when talking to the kids about Miro’s art I described his technique as ”taking a line for a walk” – and that’s exactly what they did when it was their turn to get drawing! Begin by discussing with the students the different kinds of lines that can be made and introduce them to Joan Miro. Post Miro artworks at each table for the students to view up close. Have the students study how Miro used space and line to create shapes. Talk about the light and dark areas of the art. Talk about adding a minimal amount of texture. Introduce the difference between shapes and form. (A circle compared to a sphere.)Then each child should take a permanent black marker and draw a line, trying not to stop or take the pen off the paper. The line eventually returns to where it started. Then give red, blue, yellow and green tempera colors and small brushes to carefully color in the shapes created by the lines. MIRO Proficient Basic Minimal Draw a line from the word element to the picture element that represents it. Pictures from Deep Space Sparkle Miro symbols Choose and use!
