I found this lesson plan broken down really well on Teachers Pay Teachers with Sparkle Gal's Art Magic. Thank you! I had 2 projects going on at one time. Students who were finishing up a 3D clay lesson and this 2 point perspective. It was a nice lead into another lesson that had visuals already created for me. As, I was needed with finishing up of the clay unit. Nothing like having 2 messy lessons going at once. All worth it as everyone was successful with both units.

I started of the year with 7th Grade doing Thierry Noir. I presented a little history of Noir and his interaction with The Berlin Wall. For more Thierry Noir posts, Click HERE!
I told their kids to put their twist on their Thierry Noir project.
They painted with acrylic.
Easy start to get back in the groove and great results!
Thierry Noir could make any town look funky.

This lesson was a great way to teach Overlapping and touch on the Elements of Art. Each student that created one was successful. I did this lesson at the end of last year to close out the last 9 weeks wheel session. The students had a blast with it. The packet / bundle was an awesome resource for this lesson. Thanks, Ms Artastic from Teachers Pay Teachers.

My 6th Graders loved learning about Thierry Noir. They found the history of The Berlin Wall quite fascinating. By combing Art and History, the students saw the true picture of how art impacts lives.
I showed bits and pieces of the following videos.
The kids drew some Thierry Noir.
The kids painted some Thierry Noir.

This was a great way to WELCOME parents to our back to school night. Mrs. Duncan and Mrs. Coburn created this collaborative piece of art with our 8th grade students. Check it out below!
