Assignment 9: Value Scales
Subject: Visual Art
· Outline Learning Goals
· Explain Assignment
· Show Examples & Discuss
· Create Grid Together
· Teacher-Student Conversations
· Informal Observation
Instructional Teaching Strategies:
· Listening and viewing
· Practicing Value Scales
|Targeted Learning Objective(s):
· CP9.11 Select and use appropriate forms, technologies, images, and art making processes to convey ideas.
· CP9.12 Solve visual art problems in new and unfamiliar ways.
|Targeted Learning Indicator(s):
· Experiment with different ideas and techniques.
· Demonstrate effective use of visual art tools, materials, and techniques.
Set: (30 minutes)
To begin the lesson I will outline the learning goals, which will be written on the board. Students will then be asked to gather around the middle table for an explanation where I will have examples laid out. Next I will explain expectations for the assignment.
-values do not have to be black and white, they can be colours too (red)
-but keeping time in mind we are using pencil to create values
-this is practice showing how capable you are with using your pencil and will help you with your final assignment
Development: (20 minutes)
I will then demonstrate how to divide our papers evenly and correctly and we will complete this task as a class. I will draw/ write the dimensions on the board as a visual for students. I will get two students to distribute rulers while I hand out paper. I will explain that this process should be very tedious because this is included in your mark. Your dimensions have to correct and your lines need to be straight.
-11 squares in total but only 10 will be filled in (one for name)
-2” from the bottom of the paper and make a straight line across
-1” inwards on both sides of the paper and make a straight line (don’t just measure 2” from the one side because if it isn’t cut correctly then the dimensions will not be even)
-make sure squares are 2” in width
-height of each square should be 1” so start at the bottom and make tics and then draw our lines across.
Conclusion: (5 minutes)
Students will put their value scale in their folder and put their folder away as they leave class. I will inform students that we will be continuing this assignment tomorrow.
Materials Needed/ Preparation:
–11 squares in total but 10 will be filled in (one will be for name)
–assignment is out of 10
–each square needs to be 100% even value
-don’t move on from one area until it is complete
-start at the darkest (never start at the lightest)
-visual jumps from each value
-should not see pencil strokes you should be using a circular motion
-should see a line separating the values
-do not use tip of your pencil
-do not push hard
-try to get the lightest square as light as you possibly can with pencil and then use your kneaded eraser.
-straight lines- proper cutting
-talk about width
-pay attention as we go along because detail matters and you will lose marks
· Basic knowledge of value scales
· Learning goals will be outlined at the beginning of lesson so students know what to expect
· A demonstration will be provided for students to further understand the assignment
