Currently in visual arts class, students are using the design cycle to create a logo as connected to their third line of inquiry: how the design cycle is used to innovate and create. They will be assessed on the visual arts learning outcomes:
|Visual Arts Phase 2.6 Identify the stages of their own and others’ creative processes
|Visual Arts Phase 3.4 Reflect of their own and others’ creative processes to inform their thinking
After learning about the design cycle, students unpacked the words and thought of similar describing words related to visual arts.
Students went around the school investigating different logos and discovering the differences between logos, symbols, and signs.
Students learned about how logos have changed over time: logo evolution. After evaluating the current Google logo, students thought about how they could redesign the logo to improve it. They created four sketches and shared their best example with the class during a class critique.
Next, each class will design a different type of logo as they continue to use the design cycle. Year 4.1 will design a logo for the art room, Year 4.2 will design a logo for LIS, Year 3 will continue to modify their google logos, and Year 4 will redesign an existing logo. Today, 4.4 went to the PYP computer lab to investigate and research the logo they have chosen to redesign.
