      Dear Art Educators,

      Day of the Dead lesson ideas has come up on both Art Education and Getty list.
      How about a Dia de los Muertos lesson making a tunnel book?

      Order Joan Sommer's Dancing Skeletons for inspiration:
      http://www.amazon.com/Dancing-Skeletons-Tunnel-Calaveras-Libro/dp/0975415034

      You could tie in some research too.... Have the book be about a "hero"
      or about an artist.

      Here is the lesson plan page on Incredible Art Department:
      http://www.princetonol.com/groups/iad/Files/Joanna-Popart.htm

      A more complicated lesson idea (for Middle School) - would be a
      retablo/shrine box with a Calaveras. The Skeleton could be done with
      shrink plastic. Lesson for making the shrink plastic skeleton is no
      longer online.
      Skeleton Template now is only available to site members of Enchanted Learning:
      http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/halloween/bones/template.shtml
      For middle school, I recommend you get some diagrams of skeletons (or
      better yet, a skeleton model) and have the students draw their own
      parts. You could do it as a lesson in figure proportion.

      If anyone does one of these lessons, send images to me to add to the
      lesson plage.

      Little kids can paint skulls with a solution of water and sugar on black paper. Then dry. Sugar will be crystalized when dry. Not that exciting, but EASY. And

        Not that exciting, but EASY. And they enjoy painting with “invisible” paint.
        You can also mix sugar with thin white tempera paint if the invisible aspect is not important.

        Judy mentioned doing a retablo/shrine and I had recently seen a great lesson idea on
        that... Character Nichos.
        www.dickblick.com/lessonplans/2006nichos/
        Someone from a graphic arts firm dropped off a big box of foamcore pieces for me
        last year.  Maybe you could call around town and get yours donated too.  Would
        framing shops have that too?  Kathie.
