Painting a Feeling Using Geometric Shapes and a Color Scheme

Painting a Feeling Using Geometric Shapes and a Color Scheme

Students will create an artwork incorporating the elements of art—shape, color, and value—and one principle of design—unity—to communicate a feeling or an emotion.

This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.


These are analytic rubrics. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.
