My residencies directly relate to Minnesota State Art Standards, including:
• Understanding elements of visual art, including (color, line, shape, form,
texture, and space)
• Understanding the characteristics of visual art from a variety of cultures
and historical times;
• Using the tools, basic skills, and techniques of different mediums; and
• Creating original works of art to communicate ideas.
During my residencies
Students will learn to create their own characters using basic shapes and
simple materials (paper, pencil, black markers). Depending on the grade, we
will cover: Creating human, animal, and anthropomorphic characters,
onomatopoeia, sequential storytelling,
