About ‘The Secret Language of Objects’:
THIS PROJECT IS SPLIT OVER FOUR DAYS.
Students learn how objects can represent an idea (or serve as symbols), and they focus on the Renaissance as a period in which artists often used symbols to tell a story or convey a message. While making art, they use symbols to create an artwork that describes an experience they had, or tells a story. Students finish with colored pencils.
A note that the Doodles Academy curriculum encourages a growth mindset by focusing on process over product: projects are designed to allow students to tell their own stories and individualize art projects. This creates a more engaging and more challenging environment where students learn to solve their own problems rather than copying a model.
A typical day in the project:
Students watch a video giving them context and demonstrations.
Students receive instructions and work on their art independently.
-Guardians will receive emails detailing concepts they can discuss with their children.
-After the final lesson, students will submit a photo of their artwork and an artist statement.
