Re:spring semester ideasHi _ I have a few ideas –they may not be at all what you are looking for, but just in case...
First, I also agree with the suggestion to explore Cubism.
And maybe explore more of the “Math in the Art” -- like look at the Looking at tangrams again – but with older students in mind. Take a look at Patrick Scotts Tangram I, explore the real math in a Tangram (the angles and all that – fascinating) explore the history behind it, etc.
Tooth pick art – paint a lesson themed background and then use toothpicks to make tribal designs, explore architecture or make sculpture and figures.
Study Joseph Stella (bridges, Pittsburg pics, or other aspects)
Make a mask (many students love these as a keepsake)
Paper mache’ people
Have a paint brush workshop: We recently experimented with brush sizes, synthetic vs. natural, and lots of misc. details or facts about paintbrushes.
Drip art. My students (of all ages) lovvvvve anything with drip art. We set up stations
History in art. Use a state or national standard (preferably that the student already knows so the info is familiar) and have students depict a battle or event with their choice of media. One of our students recently thought of showing an officer that got metal chards in his eyes – and is making a 3-D figure that is rubbing the eyes and crouching over – while standing on the deck of a ship. Very unique way to show this scene.
