This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.
My students are primarily lower income and 90% are minorities. My students are incredibly creative and love learning. They love been exposed to different art forms and embrace their creativity.
Resources are limited at my school and differentiation would greatly benefit instruction.
My students love using chalk pastels and oil pastels and we have explored figure drawing. This project will help my students learn correct proportions as well as color theory by using different techniques to create different visual effects using the chalk and oil pastels to create their superhero art works. My students are really interested in character design and this project will help cultivate their creativity as well as their technical skills as artists. Utilizing the poseable figures will also help students create connections because they will make their learning more concrete.
