Re: stick on address labels
- Hey, what about putting the white labels over pieces of art by famous
artists (I'm thinking calendar pages) and getting the kids to match up
the colors, movement of paint, and objects. It would be a way to get
them to see how many colors are really used in every square inch of a
painting! You can't just use "red", you have to use red orange, red
brown, reds that move closer to purplish colors.... my first two
thoughts were about Van Gogh and Matisse's, "Red Room". But any
reporduction of art work would work. If you had a large poster, you
could cut it up and section it out, then have the kids put it back
together again and see how they did.
If I were to do this, I would talk about the conservation of art
work, and those special, lucky few who get to retouch masterpieces.
You might also tell them how to carry a painting, why we never touch
art with our bare hands, and other art museum etiquette.
Hmm, maybe I'll get my kids some sticky labels :)
