Peter Max Game
You will create a Peter Max style colored pencil drawing by rolling the die and collecting the different parts required to put it together.
Begin by drawing a small heart on your paper. Then, roll to determine what border design you’ll draw around the heart. The second roll will determine a pattern for inside the heart. The third roll will select a pair of wings. The fourth roll will give you a background design. And the last three rolls will add some fun extras in the background.
Once drawn, use a black permanent marker to outline everything. Then color everything in using colored pencil. Some shapes should be filled in solidly while others should be created by blending two or more colors together. This is called a “gradation.”
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.
