Grade 7 Project Sample Ideas

Would you like to enhance your students’ learning experience? Want them to really get immersed in your subject and give them that hands-on feeling of REAL learning and exploration?

Let us design a high-quality Creative workshop customized to fit your curriculum!

Our workshops are designed to work with the teacher to enhance any current themes or topics the kids are learning about to make it more fun. For instance, if they are learning about medieval times, we can create ceramic castles, or a shield/crest… we can make cultural connections (Aztec suns, Chinese Dragons, Native masks etc), create Egyptian Sarcophaguses, Pioneer Log Houses, etc etc.

Any topic of learning can become creative, and it is in this state where real learning blossoms. Let us show you our magic!

Here are just some of the projects we’ve done in the past:

Project 1: Houses of the World

Students will explore and learn about the different homes of different people around the world. They will be shown how our homes can vary greatly in both material and design depending on where we live in the. Students will then learn a variety of techniques from which they can create their own house, either copying something they learned about or creating their own fantasy home.

A valuable journey into thinking outside of ourselves, and considering the many faces of humanity and our common needs.


Project 2: Animal Sculpture (Robert Bateman and Henry Moore)

In this workshop students will be asked to research Robert Bateman and Henry Moore. They will also be asked to use their research to inspire and guide them to create their own drawings and sketches. Then they will learn how to take a 2D image and make it into a 3D sculpture, while learning concepts of space, texture, lines and problem solving techniques.

A great and challenging project that reflects a huge amount of the basic skills essential in any visual art.


Project 3: Masks

Students will communicate through clay their thoughts and feelings and experiences. First they will be asked to draw masks that will remind them of something that makes them happy. It can be music, a book, a poem, a memory of a trip or even something very simple. Then they will be asked to bring to class found objects that they can use to create interesting patterns or textures. Then they will learn how they can use their materials and other techniques to make their masks and communicate their thoughts.

A meaningful project that teaches how we can explore and learn to understand our thoughts and feelings in more tangible ways.
