Giuseppe Arcimboldo Art Game
You will create a Giuseppe Arcimboldo portrait by rolling the die and collecting the different parts required to create it.
First, trace one of the templates onto another sheet of heavy white drawing paper. Then, roll the die to select which set of eyes you’ll draw. Roll the die two more times to determine which nose and ears you’ll add from column #2. Then, roll again to select which mouth you’ll pick from column #3. The fifth roll will give you which cheeks you’ll draw. And lastly, roll two more times to determine which chin and hair you’ll add from column #5.
Once you’re finished drawing, outline everything in permanent marker. Then color it in using either markers or colored pencils.
First, print out the game and picture directions back-to-back. Then give them dice and watch them have fun creating their own art project independently. Once completed, have students use the self-assessment rubrics to evaluate their artwork based on craftsmanship, creativity, following directions, work habits, project goals, and clean up. And then have them complete the “Big Ideas” sheet so they can connect the creation process to their learning.
