Subject/Title: Name Illustration Portfolio Covers
Grade Level: 5-12
Objectives: To allow students to personalize a portfolio in which they will store their class artwork.
Goals: Students will incorporate their names in a creative painted design on their portfolio cover.
Pencils, erasers, practice paper
White posterboard (2 sheets per student)
Stapler, hole punch, yarn, yardstick
Tempera paint, brushes
Note: This is a pre-instruction project at the beginning of the year. While the students are working on these, I can assess how they approach projects, as well as assess their skills with color mixing, painting, design, etc.
In previous years I had the students use more staples and clear packaging tape to make their pocket portfolio, but now I think that yarn works better.
