Content Objective: 
We will
learn about the art of stained glass. We will select a farm animal or western image for our stained glass image. We will draw and fracture the drawing to make it look like stained glass. We will use color blending with Prismacolors. This piece will be submitted for the Rodeo Art Contest.

Language Objective: 
Listening:
Demonstrate how to fragment a drawing to create the stained glass look.
Learning Strategies: Learn how to blend colors to create visual texture.
Speaking: Students will speak to their neighbor about how to fragment their drawing and add color.


Direct Instruction/Lesson Presentation: 

Day 1 – Introduce the art of stained glass.

Demonstrate how to begin a stained glass drawing by first creating a frame. Show examples.

Demonstrate how to draw a farm animal or western scene and how to fragment the drawing. (fragment means to break up the drawing into pieces - like pieces of glass, best places for this is at color change areas, feathers, or in backgrounds to create space)

Pass out a variety of farm animal and western handouts for visual reference. Have students sketch ideas in their sketchbook.

Day 2 – Review Day 1 and the expectations of their stained glass farm animal or western image. Pass out final copy paper - Grey paper. 

Remind students to start with the frame first. The frame should be 3 inches in width all the way around. (this allows for matting) 

Then to fill the frame with nice composition. Do not draw too small. Look at the examples on the white board. Images inside the frame should be large and clear to see. Too many tiny details actually lose detail. Less detail is more. 

Day 3 – demonstrate how to trace over all lines with metallic silver prismacolor. Once all lines are traced, students will begin to add color. Maximum of 5 colors.

Day 4 – 5 continue to add color until complete. Remind students that we should not see any grey paper. To overlap the colors to blend and to color nicely. Any areas that they colored over the metallic silver need to be touched up.
