V. Daily lesson objectives: The artist will begin to build an artist vocabulary by
reviewing the Elements of art. The artist will create examples of the elements of art
in their notes to be able to identify the elements of art and use key vocabulary to
explain them.

VI. Activity: Students will follow along with a teacher lead lecture about the elements
of art. Students are expected to take note and then draw personal images that
correspond with each element of art.

VII. Content Integration: Due to the high use of slides and notes student will practice
writing and reading during this lesson. Students will also be exposed to Historic
art pieces used as examples for the elements of art.

VIII. Pre-Assessment: Quick assessment verbally about what the elements of art are.
How many elements of art are there? List them. Scan for how many students are
able to follow and are lost/not responding. Depending on class wide understand can
vary how in depth I would need to cover each element.

IX. Success Criteria: Student has listened through out lecture and has written down
notes from the slides. Student has also drawn either a personal example in notes or
has used some of the examples from the slide from each element.
X. Post-Assessment: possible exit ticket or next day review. As a class list the seven
elements of art. Be able to talk in a least a sentence about what each element
means to an art piece.
