Fake Book Assignments Rubrics For Elementary

3-D Art Functional Art Ceramics

Expectations for Success-Rubric

 

Consider the following questions during your studio process creating an original clay urn:

  • How can a functional vessel be a work of art?
  • How can a contemporary artist make new meaning from an ancient art form?

To be successful with this project you must do your best with all of the following experiences:

  • Look at examples of contemporary ceramics
  • Critique and analyze various styles and techniques
  • Sketch unique interpretations that are contemporary-edgy and unique
  • Design a template for the urn to be used when cutting clay slabs
  • Use a slab roller to produce even walls of the vessel
  • Cover a plaster mold with clay slabs to form a shape
  • Allow clay to dry to leather hard
  • Construct a multi-sided vessel by scoring and slipping molded and/or flat shapes together
  • Smooth surfaces to give a seamless appearance
  • Decorate surfaces with incised and relief designs
  • Add relief embellishments to make the aesthetically pleasing
  • Construct extra pieces such as spouts and handles so the vessel is functional
  • After bisque firing, use glazes in a painterly manner to decorate the surfaces
  • Use 2-3 layers of glaze for even coverage
  • Write a reflection critique that self-assesses success

 

Use excellent craftsmanship:

  • Design a unique interpretation
  • Store clay in a zipped bag so it does not dry out while you are working on it
  • Roll even slabs
  • Use a sponge to smooth the clay
  • Make sure there are no cracks- if some appear apply thin layers of clay to fill them in
  • Securely attach (score & slip) the relief sculptures so they appear to be all one piece
  • Smooth the clay before it air dries
  • When glazing, use 2-3 layers of color for even coverage
  • BE CREATIVE!

 

Demonstration of mastery will include:

  • Design an urn that can function- engineer it so that it “works”
  • Smooth all slabs and drapes of clay before joining
  • Score and slip and smooth seams
  • Refine the piece so that it functions the way it was designed
  • Add design elements in surface decorations
  • Use 2-3 coats of glaze in a painterly manner to decorate the surface

 

(Movement towards mastery is considered when parts of the assignment need improvement- such as inability to join seams, a vessel that does not “work”, uneven glaze coverage, etc.)

 

Experiment and take risks.  Critique your work as you go along.  Don’t be afraid to revise and refine something you’ve tried and want to change and/or make better.

Talk to your peers.  Share ideas.  Share your findings as you experiment with ceramic and clay-building techniques

7th & 8th 3-D Art

Modern Figure Sculpture in the Style of Alberto Giacometti- Rubric

Expectations for Success


Consider the following questions during your drawing process:

  • How can an artist integrate visual and spatial concepts with content to communicate meaning?
  • How can art be social commentary?
  • How do the visual possibilities and qualities of art materials (mediums) communicate ideas?

To be successful with this project you must do your best with all of the following experiences:

  • Look at the work of Alberto Giacometti
  • Critique his work
  • Share prior knowledge of the period of time during an after Work War II
  • Participate in a discussion to share ideas

            about how artists communicate ideas

  • Explore and discuss the topic of expression in artwork that may not show beauty- yet the work itself may be beautiful
  • See proportions and relationships in the human form
  • Observe teacher demonstrations of contour drawing(drawing outlines) to plan for a sculpture
  • Analyze drawings to determine how the two dimensional image may be translated into three dimensions
  • Observe teacher demonstration of using wire (line) to translate a drawing into a sculpture
  • Design interpretations of social interactions by drawing thumbnail sketches
  • Create a wire armature of a human form that is elongated and abstract
  • Create a wire armature of another form to accent the main figure
  • Tightly wrap the wire armature in sheets of foil
  • Anchor the armatures in a base so that it will stand
  • Enhance the armature with more wire, foil, and plaster to make it a 3-D form
  • Craft and bend the human form to be expressive before the plaster dries
  • Paint the sculpture black (or dark color), then dry brush metallic paint to create a unique finish
  • Title the work to explain the social and emotional intent of the visual expression
  • Write a critique and self-assessment

Use Good Craftsmanship:

  • Design a figure in the expressive and elongated style of Alberto Giacometti, but shows your creativity and imagination
  • Craft a sturdy armature that will stand when placed in styrofoam
  • Layer more wire and foil over the armature to make the flat wire shape become 3-D form
  • Carefully, layer plaster craft over the armature.
  • Make sure you smooth the plaster so there are no wrinkles and the cheesecloth does not show
  • Be neat!
  • Be neat as you paint and finish with a metallic dry-brush paint

Movement towards mastery will be considered when all or parts of the process and product are not at full potential.  For instance: the the figure is not balance or the plaster work is sloppy.



Experiment and take risks.  Have fun!  Think about how you can interpret a work of art and be unique at the same time.  Critique your work as you go along.  Don’t be afraid to revise and refine something you’ve tried and want to change and/or make better.

Talk to your peers.  Share ideas.  Share your findings as you experiment with sculptural techniques.

Product Description

Is grading in-class assignments and homework taking up a TON of your time? Students tend to have consistent patterns of accuracy, completeness, timeliness, and neatness, so why not score work in bigger batches? This holistic rubric saves you time and allows you to give students and parents a "big picture" evaluation of work habits.

* Fully editable
* Available in Windows, Mac, and Google Slides formats

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Note: This product was formerly called "Homework Rubric." It has been updated to this editable format so you can use it for other types of assignments.
__________________________________________________________________________________________

Here's a suggested system for using the rubric:

(1) On the day the work is due, follow your usual procedure to check for accuracy, whether it be to have students mark their own errors, to have an aide or assistant mark errors, to glance over it yourself during a bell-ringer, etc. This will allow you to formatively assess student understanding of the concepts you're teaching.

(2) Instead of collecting and recording a score for every single assignment, have students store their homework in folders, then collect work in batches on a weekly basis, every two weeks, or whatever works for you.

(3) Evaluate the whole batch at once for each student, using this rubric to score student work as a whole.

(4) Return the batch to students with one holistic score, either attaching this rubric or having students refer to a copy of the rubric you gave them to keep.

Remember, this system does not prevent you from LOOKING AT work or ASSESSING where students are -- that can be done informally, during class or whenever you have a concern about a student or a particular skill. What this lets you do is quickly and efficiently CREDIT students for their work and RECORD that credit.
