My 2nd Hour 3D Art/Mixed Media class recently completed one of my favorite projects -
Art History Mini-Golf! Students worked in groups to design a functional mini golf hole inspired by a famous artist of their choice. Before construction, students researched their artists and created an informational poster. See finished examples below.
Students then constructed their miniature golf hole using cardboard and other materials. See their final results with their corresponding artist below.
Olivia, Brien, Sam & Sydney
Marti, Nikki, Kallie & Natalie
Vincent Van Gogh
Jasmine, Verany & Ashley
Zoe, Bryce, & Skylar
Miranda & Kaylee
When all golf holes were completed, the Mini-Masters Tournament could begin!
All 4 of my classes got to play through their projects and critique them after each hole was complete via a google form. They rated each project on things like craftsmanship, creativity and functionality, along with giving them constructive criticism on their informational posters. The creators were able to read through comments and scores when everything was complete. I also used this information when grading their work.
Students also cast a popular vote for which hole they thought was the BEST!
The winning project for that vote was BANKSY!
