Artistic Elements: Exploring Art Through Descriptive Writing
Exploring the world of art motivates students to use descriptive language. In this lesson, students become engaged in the studies of both art and written language, as they create descriptive writing pieces. Using the book Anna's Art Adventure as the basis for discussion, students are led through a scaffolded lesson in which they use adjectives to describe the color, shape, line, and mood present within various pieces of artwork. When their descriptions are complete, students are then asked to use their observations to create their own renditions of an artist's work.
