X. Summative Assessment and Evaluation:

I want to know how students will work as a team when creating a story as a group.
I want students to exemplify the desire to create as a team while pushing each other to do

I will record this with the art they created as well as the story the have written as a class.
XI. Interdisciplinary Connections:
XII. References & Resources:
Foundations: observation and perception. The student develops and expands visual literacy skills
using critical thinking, imagination, and the senses to observe and explore the world by learning about,
understanding, and applying the elements of art, principles of design, and expressive qualities. The
student uses what the student sees, knows, and has experienced as sources for examining,
understanding, and creating original artwork.
The student is expected to:
A. analyze visual characteristics of sources to illustrate concepts, demonstrate flexibility in solving
problems, create multiple solutions, and think imaginatively;
B. compare and contrast the elements of art, including line, shape, color, texture, form, space, and
value, as the fundamentals of art in personal artwork;
C. compare and contrast the principles of design, including emphasis, repetition/pattern,
movement/rhythm, contrast/variety, balance, proportion, and unity, in personal artwork; and
D. explore the suitability of art media and processes and select those appropriate to express specific
ideas such as content, meaning, message, and metaphor relating to visual themes to interpret the
expressive qualities of artwork.
Creative expression. The student communicates ideas through original artwork using a variety of
media with appropriate skills. The student expresses thoughts and ideas creatively while challenging

the imagination, fostering reflective thinking, and developing disciplined effort and progressive
problem-solving skills.
The student is expected to:
A. create original artwork using multiple solutions from direct observation, original sources,
experiences, and imagination in order to expand personal themes that demonstrate artistic intent;
B. solve visual problems and develop multiple solutions for designing ideas, creating practical
applications, clarifying presentations, and evaluating consumer choices in order to make successful
design decisions;
C. use an understanding of copyright and public domain to appropriate imagery constituting the main
focal point of original artwork when working from images rather than direct observation or
D. create original artwork to communicate thoughts, feelings, ideas, or impressions;
