Final meets California Art Standards: 

1.8 Analyze the works of a well-known artist as to the art media selected and the effect of that selection on the artist's style.
2.1 Create original works of art of increasing complexity and skill in a variety of media that reflect their feelings and points of view.
2.2 Plan and create works of art that reflect complex ideas, such as distortion, color theory, arbitrary color, scale, expressive content, and real versus virtual.

Formal: Grading final sculpture

English Language Learner: Handout for project, project samples, Power point with visuals, Critique for additional understanding, Demonstration of techniques, group activities to check for understanding
Special Needs: Handout for project, project samples, Power point with visuals, Critique for additional understanding, Demonstration of techniques
Accelerated Learner: Expand on skills learned to create a unique project. 
Advanced art students will be asked to increase the difficulty of their final sculpture They will also be expected incorporate more details and principles into the final project

Scaffolding adaptations: 
Students will revisit Contrast, Color, Pattern, Scale, Proportion, Movement, Rhythm  from the earlier learning. We will use similar visuals to refresh earlier learning.  Notes on Art history, Key Vocabulary and artists will be taken throughout discussions for added understanding. Creating sketchbook plans and Constructing final sculpture will be demo started in class using guided instruction.

Tag Board Or heavy Card Stock
Oil Pastel

Direct Instruction: 
Art Link: Project a photo of a completed tunnel book to the class
Critique this tunnel book with small group
Critique Tunnel book as large group.

Art History: 
A tunnel or peephole book is a set of pages bound into accordions on two sides 
It is viewed through a central opening.
Scenery or shapes are cut out of the pages and then assembled in layers.
 Inspired by theatrical stage sets
The tunnel book form dates from the mid-eighteenth century 
Project additional examples and model how to create the final book through example and step by step instruction

Reflection: Students who were the most successful created mattes that got smaller in size leading to background. This format increased stability, reflected art history and met more rubric goals. Here is the link to the historic photo we referenced to increase comprehension:
