Has your class been dispatched to make a workmanship venture for the school sell off?

These collaborative efforts often go for top dollar on the night of the auction but an elaborate art project may be the last thing you want to add to your list.

That’s why we love these simple but beautiful ideas.

Popsicle Stick Collage

Give each student 4-6 large wooden Popsicle sticks to color in completely with colored Sharpie pens or tempera paint. Encourage them to decorate each stick uniquely.

After you have collected all of the sticks, lay them out on large foam board in a checkerboard manner, experimenting with what you think looks best.

When you are happy with your plan, stick down. Attach a hanger to the back of the foam board.

Collaborative Circle Tapestry

Using a 3-inch circle of cardboard, yarn, and a needle, students will first create a looming structure and then weave yarn in a circular pattern to create a unique and beautiful circle (see detailed directions here).

String individual circle weavings together using twine attached to a dowel or interesting tree branch.

There are two different methods for creating these beautiful sculptures. The primary (headings here) is created with coffee channel papers, water-based markers, paper glasses and a squirt container of water.

The second one (headings here) is built with plastic expendable containers, Sharpie pens, and a toaster broiler.

Hand Hearts Photograph

You will need a good camera for this project. Demonstrate for your students how to create the shape of a heart with their hands.

Provide a colorful piece of paper as a background for each student to create their hand heart, then snap a photo.

Mount all of the students’ heart photos together with a crisp white mat surrounding them, then frame.

Woven Watercolor Strips

Determine the width and length you want each strip of watercolor paper for the weaving to be.

Give each student one strip and let them apply different watercolor techniques in the color palette of their choosing to their individual strip.

Weave the strips tightly together and glue down onto a piece of black background to form this beautiful piece of art!

As a teacher or someone who works with middle school students, you probably understand how important it can be to incorporate art into your instruction.

Art projects can provide a wonderful opportunity for students to express themselves, and they engage students visually as well as with their tactile senses.

At the same time, middle school students have many other demands on them, including rigorous academic expectations.

This means that you do not necessarily have tons of time available to devote to complex art projects.

This lesson provides a series of art projects that make use of different kinds of materials and appeal to the interests of middle school students.

The activities are intentionally planned so that they can be finished rapidly, either at home or in the homeroom.

The prospect of preparing sub lessons for middle and high school Art classes (also known as relief lessons)

Can fill an educator with fear and be seen as more terrible than coming back to class while wiped out.

To solve this problem, we have provided a collection of complete one-off Art lessons that can be printed at the click of a button and administered by any relief or substitute teacher,

Regardless of their background (or lack of) in Art and Design.

These tasks require only basic materials and are absent of elaborate procedures, dangerous equipment, and undue mess. Despite their simplicity

However, the exercises encourage students to practice valuable art-making skills and reinforce prior learning in a fun, relaxing and stress-free way.

As in these examples by Sean Dooley, a graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design:

This exercise combines sculptural 3D form with linear observational drawings of angular planes.

Understudies are issued with two sheets of white paper and a pencil, just as directions for collapsing the origami crane.

Students fold the paper crane and then spend the rest of the lesson-drawing this from a variety of angles, giving attention to line weight and shadows.

As in these examples by Year 12 student Jenny Ha, ACG Parnell College:

This lesson plan was created by Janet Carter as an introductory task for Year 12 Graphic Design students at ACG Parnell College.

Students are provided with white A4 paper and a graphite pencil. Paper is creased, folded, ripped, rolled and torn to create tiny sculptures that each represent a chosen emotion (pain, sorrow, excitement etc.)

These are then drawn, including shadows, with notes about the chosen emotion. This encourages students to think about how abstract forms, shapes, lines, and tone suggest meaning.

Explore negative and positive space

As in these artworks by 7th Grade students taught by Larisa Kamp, Calvert School:

Students are issued with a square of black paper, a white piece of paper, glue stick, pencil and pair of scissors.

Students then design several simplified images, icons or symbols to represent a chosen theme.

Half of each image is cut from the edges of the black square, with the cutout piece flipped over to complete the mirror image of each image, as shown.

Once completed, all pieces are glued onto a larger sheet of paper.

Create a tessellation

As in this exercise taught to 5th Grade students by Bradley Hale, Chalke Elementary School: This tessellation Art lesson uses drawing paper,

A square or rectangular bit of cardboard, sticky tape, scissors and pencils (shading pencils can likewise be utilized whenever wanted).

Understudies deliberately cut a shape from one side of a square of cardboard and tape this to the contrary side (or move it around one side of a square if a pivoting design is required).

This is rehashed for the staying opposite sides. The cardboard stencil is followed so the example rehashes over the bit of paper..

Once complete, students add details, tone and/or color as desired. Combining both math’s an art, this lesson explores positive and negative shapes, transformation, repetition, and symmetry.

As in these examples by 15 year old artist Joao Carvalho:

The fine art of Brazilian understudy Joao Carvalho as of late circulated around the web on the web and was shared by top plan bloggers, causing Joao to increase more than 44,000 Facebook adherents.

This makes a fun and entertaining substitute Art lesson, requiring only a piece of paper, pencil, and blue pen.

Students begin by sketching the outline of an object and then ruling blue horizontal lines across the piece of paper, stopping at the edge of the object, simulating the lines on a page.

Shape lines are drawn bending up and over the outside of the item, with tone added to help underscore the type of the article.
