This is the first assignment I go through with my students, each of these concepts is a simple precept in my course that we explore as the course progresses. Here's a link to the packet I use to supplement the poster with: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6-Qu1ZGIO_7M0ZZZ0hSMHRDTzA/edit?usp=sharing
Students are offered many ways to make the poster, they can paint directly onto it, they can paint on sticker paper, they can paint on paper and stick it to the poster, they can paint on contact paper, any of these methods works. It's an extrememly simple assignment that I call back to all the time when I use academic vocabulary or reference or demonstrate a skill. Like say for instance, "You need to use dry brush here to make this visual texture, remember that from the painting theory poster?" often the student remembers and is able to reproduce or at least converse in the language of that technique. The painting assignments after this one are where they master these techniques and apply them to real world situations.
