Generating Ideas Brainstorm both an object and designs to paint on the object. The object should be a medium size, like an old instrument, record, or a child's chair. You will need to bring something from home. Another source for objects is a thrift store, like Good Will or Value Village. These stores have random items for just a few dollars, Look at folk art patterns for ideas or pay homage to a famous art work. The famous artwork can be compiled onto the object or done in another style. For example, The Mona Lisa could be drawn and painted using an anime style.
Visual Development Once, you have decided what you are going to do, begin thinking about painting. Start by planning your design and thinking about your color scheme. You may choose to work around a theme, paint a scene, add multiple designs/patterns, or recreate a famous artwork. Draw out three ideas and choose your favorite. Plan colors and patterns so that you have a blueprint to work from.
Refinement Clean up painted edges, gluing, etc. Repaint areas that need second coats, Add more detail to areas that are too simplistic.
Reflection Download the rubric, annotate it, photograph final artwork and turn in everything to Schoology.
