This slideshow is a collection of personal landscape photos that I have taken over the course of the last year. As an art educator I could use this slide show as an example of how to incorporate personal expression into an assignment. During a unit on perspective and landscape design that focuses on the development of the foreground, middle gorund and background, I could share these photos with students and discuss the elements of the design while also discussing my personal choices and decisions as the photographer/artist. The following two educational standards reflect the use of this slideshow in a standards driven art classroom.
Content standard 3.1.c. Create artworks that explore the uses of the elements of art and principles of design to express personal meaning.
NETS 1.c. Teachers use their knowledge of subject matter, teaching and learning, and technology to facilitate experiences that advance student learning, creativity, and innovation in both face-to-face and virtual environments. Teachers: promote student reflection using collaborative tools to reveal and clarify students’ conceptual understanding and thinking, planning, and creative processes.
I hope you enjoy the photos!!
