Plan for Place
Second-, third-, and fourth-year (Levels 2 and 3) students will develop a plan for a complex work of art based on the idea of place. Since this plan is a drawing only, students may envision a final work in any conceivable media or combination of media. The task will be introduced with two Art 21 video clips, some writing, and a mind-mapping exercise. Students will communicate their final vision in a plan for any media they choose. They will only make a drawing for a plan, not create the actual project.
After considering and selecting a place that has been important or meaningful to them, students will plan a work of art based upon that place. Their plan must include enough detail in drawings, sketches, and notes that the viewer can clearly envision the finished piece. Upon completion, students will reflect upon their creative process.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
