Visual Art Elements Unit - Lower Years

Teach Starter Publishing
10 x lessons | Suitable for years: 1 - 2

This Visual Arts unit investigates the Elements of Visual Art. Demonstrations and artistic techniques are explored, with particular attention given to line, shape and colour.

It consists of 7 lessons of approximately 60-minutes duration.

The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons in accordance with the individual learning needs of their class.

Three artwork assessment tasks for monitoring student understanding of the unit objectives and techniques are included throughout the unit.

Teachers are encouraged to collect samples of students’ work throughout the unit to add to a visual arts portfolio. These can also be used to assess students’ understanding of the unit objectives.
