Eric Joyner: Toy Landscapes
Eric Joyner is a contemporary American artist who is known for painting robots and donuts! In 1999, he chose to focus only on topics that he likes. He started painting with four different elements: Mexican masks, San Francisco city life, old newspaper cartoons and Japanese robots. He found that the robots were the most popular feature with his friends.
This elementary art lesson is inspired by artist Eric Joyner and his love for robots and donuts! Students will create a toy landscape while learning how to draw geometric forms and apply a range of value to achieve 3D realism!
The 8-page lesson plan includes: information about the artist, objectives, National Core Arts Standards, materials list, procedure, assessment, and extension, as well as a "2D Shapes -> 3D forms" activity sheet, artist examples, and a teacher-made example for inspiration.
