Rene Magritte Personal Values Game
You will create a Rene Magritte Personal Values inspired interior scene by rolling the die and collecting the different parts required to create it.
First, use the perspective handouts to design your room and some furniture to go with it. If you want floor or ceiling moulding, include that. Then, roll the die to pick one technology object from the first column, a beauty object from the second column, a food or drink from the third column, and an everyday object from the last two columns. Draw each object oversized within the space, overlapping them whenever possible to show a sense of depth. Feel free to change the position, angle, and style of the object as you see fit.
Then, draw a realistic, outdoor scene on the walls, ceiling, and/or floor. Lastly, use colored pencils or markers to design your scene. Be sure to add shadows underneath your objects to make them look as realistic as possible.
First, print out the game and picture directions back-to-back as well as the perspective handouts. 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.
6th grade, 7th, 8th, and 9th Grades
