Unit: Creating with Shapes

Lesson: Geometric Clown

Goals: Visual Arts

VA.5.2.2 Categorize geometric forms, free forms, and organic shapes.

VA.5.2.11 Recognize symmetrical balance

VA.5.2.7 Recognize space and depth (e.g., overlapping, size relationships).

VA.6.2.9 Produce artwork inspired by or connected to content from other disciplines(

e.g., social studies, literacy, performing arts, science, math).

VA.7.2.2 Recognize works of art using common themes across different time periods.

Geometry

G.8.2.3 Identify, classify and describe two- dimensional geometric figures ( rectangle [

including square] triangle and circle) using concrete objects, drawings, and computer graphics.

A knowledge of the difference between geometric shapes and free and organic or

natural shapes by only using geometric shapes to form their clowns.

A knowledge of symmetrical balance when forming their clown.

A knowledge of space and depth by using the whole space of the construction

paper to form their clowns.

An awareness of Wassily Kandinsky.

Geometry

Students should demonstrate:

A knowledge of classifying and describing two- dimensional geometric figures

that they used to form their clowns.

Imagination when creating their clowns.

Skill with scissors when cutting out the shapes for their clowns.

Concepts: Geometric form- is a shape that is made by straight or curved lines and if you draw a

line through it the sides will be equal.

Organic or natural form- A shape or form that doesn’t have equal or balanced sides its

not geometric. Free flowing shapes found in nature.

Symmetrical balance- if you draw a line through a shape both sides are equally
balanced.
Two-dimensional geometric figure- is a shape that you would see on paper.

Wassily Kandinsky- A Russian artist credited with being the first abstract artist that

used geometric shapes in his artwork.

Abstract artwork- art work that comes from reality, but is not.

Imagination- Using own ideas to create different and unique clowns.

Visuals: Wassily Kandinsky(1866-1944) Murnae Street with Women, 1908.

Resource: I got this idea from my Art for Teachers class, Professor Pendergrass.

Supplies and equipment: All different colors of construction paper

Scissors

Glue sticks

Teaching methods and procedure: 50 minutes

5 minutes A.      Introduce the lesson my giving the title and presenting the concepts. Review all

the concepts and make sure the students know the difference between geometric shapes and

natural or organic shapes.

10 minutes B.       Show the examples and discuss Wassily Kandinsky’s artwork. Explain to the

students that they are to make a clown using only geometric shapes and that they should use the

whole space of one piece of construction paper. They should choose one color for the

background of the picture and three to four other colors for their clown. Cut geometric shapes

out of the construction paper and glue them onto their chosen sheet of construction paper to form

clowns. Discuss any questions the students may have to avoid confusion on the directions.

30 minutes C.      Distribute supplies, monitor work and assist as needed.

5 minutes D.       Retrieve supplies and drawings. Clean up. Review and classify some of the

shapes the students used to form their clowns.
