Elements and Principles of Art + Design - In-class Written Response #1

Digital Asset Published 6/5/17 Last updated on 3/2/20

This in-class response is the first in this series, used to build student understanding and application of descriptive art and design language. Students are scaffolded through a series of tasks, with the elements and principles list supplied in this first attempt. It can be completed as a digital PDF form or completed on paper. Attached is the marking key and completed sample. I often have students self-assess this one in preparation for in-class response #2. Exam preparation.

Great way to learn the design elements by analysing and verbalising. Need to try this in class​
