A Lesson of Math and Visual Arts Through Pablo PicassoGrade: 3 Hanh Le Aubrey Lucas
Lesson Overview: Students will analyze Pablo Picasso's painting, "Three Musicians.” Through this analysis students will relate the piece to Math and Art using vocabulary from lesson plan. Students will then create their own work of art, utilizing Picasso’s style of Cubism. Students will present created artwork to their classmate demonstrating understanding of Cubism and angles.
Standards:Analyze Art Elements and Principle DesignsArts Standard 1.5- Identify & describe elements of art in works of art, emphasizing line, color, shape/form, texture, space and value. Students describe and compare the attributes of plane and solid geometric figures and use their understanding to show relationships and solve problemsMath Standard 2.4- Identify right angles in geometric figures or in appropriate objects and determine whether other angles are greater or less than a right angle.
Procedure: 1. As a class view the painting, "Three Musicians.” Ask students to describe the shapes and objects in the painting. 2. Introduce Cubism and vocabulary terms through lecture and discussion.Elements of Art: line, color, shape/form, texture, space, and value. 3. Discuss Picasso’s style of Cubism. Why is "Three Musicians" Cubism? 4. Describe what they see now.5. Introduce Angles –acute, right, and obtuse6. Identify the geometric angles in "Three Musicians." Have students count the number of angles in the painting. 7. Provide student with a worksheet to help reinforce what was learned.8. Have students create work of art. Draw a face using the different angles
Student Learning Objectives; • Know elements of Cubism • Represent textual information by creating own artwork
Materials: Xerox copies of “Three Musicians,” paper, pencils, markers, protractors, construction paper.Art & Math Vocabulary WorksheetAssignment:Students will create a piece of artwork, drawing a face, using different types of angles and elements, which demonstrates the style of Cubism. Students will present their work and describe the elements that exhibit Cubism. Student will define vocabulary words on worksheet provided.
Name_______________________ Define Words: Line- Color- Shape/Form- Texture- Value- Cubism- Acute Angle- Right Angle- Obtuse Angle- Label Angles in Painting : Acute Angle–Red, Right Angle –Blue, Obtuse Angle -Yellow
Assessment:Students will be assessed using a checklist in order to determine they can accurately identify and describe elements in a work of art (Pablo Picasso’s, “Three Musicians”). Students will be assessed in terms of their ability to identify and describe line, color, shape/form, texture, space and value. Students will also be assessed based on their ability to identify right angles in Picasso’s painting.
