lesson sample

The above is the finished example for the step-by-step PowerPoint presentation on Embossing. There are 37 slides that will take you through the entire process. The first few slides will display student embossing examples. Eight slides will discuss the Principle of Composition, with examples. During these slides there is discussion, and visuals on finding and selecting the subject matter for this project.

Activity 5:, in the lesson plan discusses how to Number and Letter the design in preparation for cutting out the template. The following two slides, from the PowerPoint, makes visual the written section in Activity 5, in the lesson plan.

This slide #14 discusses the relationship of the numbered and lettered design to the various levels that will be cut out in the template. The next twelve slides show how to transfer the design onto the chipboard, how to cut out the template and the process for gluing it together.

This Embossing preview has given you some idea of the lesson plan format and the thorough visual step-by-step process of the PowerPoint presentation. If you purchase the download and have any difficulties understanding the lesson plan or PowerPoint, do not hesitate to write to me, and I will help to answer your question.

Abstract Still Life Painting, a lesson plan for Art II (Preview) I am going to show you a Preview of another lesson plan from out Art II download that can be found on (

Remember the additional features that you will get with the first semester Art II download:

The Elements of Art The Principles of Composition The Modes of Design The Eight Color Schemes

The Abstract Still Life Painting project has 11 pages of step-by-step of lesson plans and 37 PowerPoint step-by-step slides that will take you through the assignment:

- 13 student artwork examples.

- 15 slides shows how to take the students through drawing the subject matter in an abstract Mode of Design. There are two separate drawing techniques to show them.

- 6 slides will discuss and show how to select from the Principles of Composition and create an abstract composition.

- 8 slides will show how to created 4 different color charts representing 4 different color schemes.

- 8 slides will take you through the step-by-step painting process

A great advantage of this assignment are the 15 PowerPoint slides that takes you through drawing the subject matter in an abstract Mode of Design. These will show two different approaches. One of the two approaches will help a student to create an abstract drawing even though he/she finds it difficult to draw in an abstract manner. This drawing technique can be used in other abstract projects that you may present to your students.

Subject matter can be drawn using an abstract mode of design, arranged into a
composition and painted using a controlled color scheme.


COLOR SCHEME: Three Analogous and a Complementary, Split Complementary, Double Complementary and Triadic Colors

OBJECTIVES: The students will be able to:

THIS PROJECT WILL TAKE: (approximately 5 weeks)

The time line is based on a 55 minute class period. It includes 5 minutes for preparation and 5 minutes for clean up, leaving 45 minutes of actual class work time for each class period. The class will meet 5 times a week.

HINTS/TIPS: There will be HINTS/TIPS throughout this lesson plan. They will be highlighted in yellow. They are intended to be informative and help to make the teaching process easier. If the information is known or already understood, skip over these areas.

Let's say you want to see Activity 6, The students will be able to understand several color schemes, select one and practice color mixing. Here is Activity 6:

ACTIVITY 6: (3 days)

The students will be able to understand several color schemes, select one and practice
color mixing.


Tempera paints or acrylic paints
Small brushes, #4 or #6 round
Color scheme charts, seen in the PowerPoint presentation on this topic

The teacher will produce, on white paper, 8 ½"x 11", multiples of four different color chart hand-outs. They will have a series of drawn rectangles, appropriate for the different color schemes, for the students to paint. (See the PowerPoint presentation on this topic)

2. A controlled color scheme will help the students establish unity in their paintings. There are eight color schemes. Without discussing all eight, I will suggest several that can produce harmony and contrast in a painting. The PowerPoint presentation on this topic will show the color wheel and the color schemes. After a teacher demonstration, the students will select which color scheme they want to use for their project from among the following:

Three analogous colors and one complementary color, (yellow-orange, orange and red-orange with blue)

Split complementary colors, (yellow-orange and yellow-green with violet)

Double complementary colors, (yellow-green and yellow with red-violet and violet)

Triadic colors, (blue-green, red-violet and yellow-orange) Black and white will be used with all of these color schemes to tint and shade the hues. There are many color combinations that could be used within each of the above four color schemes. I stated only one color combination within each color scheme.

I will use the triadic color scheme for my example: blue-green (turquoise), red-violet (magenta) and yellow-orange.

The following is the PowerPoint presentation on this topic:

art lesson plan

This is only one color scheme, the Triadic Color Scheme. The PowerPoint
presentation shows three more different color schemes, that are just as
informative as the one above.

The PowerPoint presentation will have 13 student artwork examples to view.
