General Course Information and Notes

General Notes

Students experiment with the media and techniques used to create a variety of two-dimensional (2-D) artworks through the development of skills in drawing.  Media and methods studied within this course may include, but are not limited to, life and figure drawing, foreshortening, linear perspective, contour, and value studies.  Students practice and manipulate the structural elements of art to improve mark making and/or the organizational principles of design with a focus on creating strong, unified compositions from observation research, and/or imagination.  Through the critique process, students evaluate and respond to their own work and that of their peers.  During this course, students will be expected to create a portfolio of personal works.  This course incorporates hands-on activities and consumption of art materials.

Students are encouraged to complete M/J Two-Dimensional Studio Art 1 (0101010) prior to enrolling in this course.

English Language Development (ELD) Standards Special Notes Section:

Teachers are required to provide listening, speaking, reading and writing instruction that allows English language learners (ELL) to communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting.   For the given level of English language proficiency and with visual, graphic, or interactive support, students will interact with grade level words, expressions, sentences and discourse to process or produce language necessary for academic success. The ELD standard should specify a relevant content area concept or topic of study chosen by curriculum developers and teachers which maximizes an ELL’s need for communication and social skills. To access an ELL supporting document which delineates performance definitions and descriptors, please click on the following link: http://www.cpalms.org/uploads/docs/standards/eld/SI.pdf.

For additional information on the development and implementation of the ELD standards, please contact the Bureau of Student Achievement through Language Acquisition at sala@fldoe.org.

Original Student Tutorials

Happy Halloween! Textual Evidence and Inferences:

Cite text evidence and make inferences in this tutorial that will teach you all about the "real" history of Halloween! 

Type: Original Student Tutorial

Scale Round Up:

Howdy y’all! I’m Deputy Design, a cowboy architect. I am going to use my architectural scale drawings for a new horse arena to teach you how to solve problems involving scale drawings. In this tutorial, you will learn to calculate actual lengths using a scale and proportions.

Type: Original Student Tutorial

Problem-Solving Tasks

Floor Plan:

The purpose of this task is for students to translate between measurements given in a scale drawing and the corresponding measurements of the object represented by the scale drawing. If used in an instructional setting, it would be good for students to have an opportunity to see other solution methods, perhaps by having students with different approaches explain their strategies to the class. Students who can only solve this by first converting the linear measurements will have a hard time solving problems where only area measures are given.

Type: Problem-Solving Task

Measuring Henry's Cabin:

This resource introduces students to the aspects a builder must think about before constructing a building. Students will study the cabin blueprint of Henry David Thoreau and then will find the surface area of the walls and how much paint would be needed. Then, students will find the volume of the cabin to determine the home heating needs. Third, students will study the blueprint and will create a 1/10 scale of it on graph paper and then will use art supplies to create a model of the cabin. Last, students will design and create models of furniture to scale for the cabin.

Type: Problem-Solving Task


Converting Speed Units:

In this lesson, students will be viewing a Khan Academy video that will show how to convert ratios using speed units.

Type: Tutorial

Virtual Manipulative

Scale Factor:

Explore the effect on perimeter and area of two rectangular shapes as the scale factor changes.
