Dear Art Educators,
Here is a lesson idea waiting for your students! Middle School and up:
The artist is Amanda Linn (Getty and ArtsEducators list member):
Mixed Media - collage/painting
Amanda is a high school art teacher in Arkansas.
Amanda's explanation of this piece:
Amanda Linn's mixed media paintings are based on stories and classified ads
from newspaper clippings. This piece was created from an article about a
teacher who was placed on administrative leave for giving a Valentine card
to a student that said "I hate you, I wish you would die."
I think the choice of triptych shape is very interesting....I can see all
sorts of ideas for using this image with a lesson for middle school and/or
Amanda - if you have done this with your students - IAD is definitely
interested! Ideas for art lessons are all around us.
Thanks for sharing!
