Pristine Cartera Turkus Owls Game
Are you looking for a fun art project to teach about women folk artists? Going to be absent and need last minute art sub plans? Fill up your sub tub with engaging art lessons like this Pristine Cartera Turkus art game that engages students. It’s how I get kids excited to learn art history! Step-by-step picture directions and the included PowerPoint presentation with close-up, detailed photos will guide your class from start to finish.
Teach your students about folk art as well as why Pristine Cartera Turkus is considered an artisan. Learn how she’s inspired by her community and culture to paint animals and people in the Mexican folk art style. This lesson is perfect for Women’s History Month in March.
Are you trying to foster more independence in your art room? This roll and draw art game makes for the best and most productive early finisher activity for your kids. You can set up a choice-based art center where students select an activity amongst different ones. Print out the game board and directions back to back, put them in a labeled folders, and let them pick what they’d like to create. This is similar to a directed drawing activity in which kids are guided through the art process.
If you’re a teacher looking for a differentiated art lesson that boosts independent thinking, problem-solving, and skill-acquisition, this will do the trick.
Student Directions for Pristine Cartera Turkus Art Lesson
You will make a Pristine Cartera Turkus folk art owl by rolling the die and collecting the different parts needed to create it.
- First, roll the die to pick a head. Draw it.
- Roll again to select a body and then wings.
- Roll to pick three flowers from the fourth column.
- And lastly, three swirls from the last column.
- While holding a pastel on its side, rub very gently on the background areas only.
- Using your pointer finger, push the chalk dust around until it fills the space. For hard to reach areas, rub pastel on your fingertip to push around.
- Lastly, using tempera paint and very small brushes, paint in the owl and flowers.
- Begin with the larger shapes first.
- For small details like dots and swirls, water down the paint. Then, paint those areas holding the brush upright, using only the tip to paint with.
I’ve included three ways kid can generate their design. The first is the game board where students roll the die to select their parts. The second is a “you pick” board. Both of these are printables. And lastly, for teachers needing engaging lessons during distance learning, I’ve added digital spinner wheels!
First, print out the Pristine Cartera Turkus art game and picture directions back-to-back. Then give your students dice and watch them have fun creating their own art project independently. If you have access to a smartboard or projector, use the accompanying PowerPoint presentation. It will guide the kids during each part of the art project.
Once completed, have your class 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.
If you are substituting or need a fast finisher activity, use the included coloring page.
