Romero Britto Dogs Game
You will design Romero Britto dogs by rolling the die and collecting the different patterns required to create it.
First, trace the dog onto another sheet of heavy white drawing paper. Next, draw no more than ten lines across the page to break up the background and cat into smaller areas. Then, roll the die to select a pattern from the first column and draw it in one of the areas. Roll the die four more times, drawing each selected pattern in one of the other areas. Repeat the same five patterns until you have filled up most of the page.
Using washable markers, color everything in neatly. Be color smart. Color one pattern in using light and dark values of the same hue. For example, a dark green background with light green polka dots. Or use analagous (”neighbor”) colors like orange and yellow. Lastly, outline all the major areas of the design and the lines you added to it using a black marker.
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.
