Re: [art_education] Re: First Days of School!
- Julie, i did an asian unit and had a couple of projects that were pretty fun: tea tray: use masking tape on a box lid, weave; handles had been added b4 from rope and a stick of bamboo, paint chinese red and burnish with brn shoe polish'stamp center with asian stamp or paint on design; make kimonos from hosp. gowns: draw a big circle on back and marker in the design' use stamps to complete pattern around the rest (color theory was involved); we made abstracts of fans:make paper pulp and drape over toilet paper rolls or other supports' dry and glue in bamboo sticks. the mixed media was very cool for the kids. by the way, I might be the only person in the world that cannot origami fold! kOn Jul 10, 2010, at 10:47 AM, Julie Casebourn wrote:

You might try an activity that ties in with History / Social Studies which you'd have to find a copy of the 5th grade History / Social Studies curriculum, which maybe available on-line. You'll need to get copies of Art work (paintings preferably) that are reflective of the time periods 5th graders study in History / Social Studies.
I've attached a plan I wrote and used for an observation I did two years ago. It is a cross-curriculum activity that is also a cooperative one that does not require a lot of set-up or does it create a mess. Ironically, it was for fifth grade. Feel free to use it if you'd like to. Let me know how it goes.

Subject: Re: [art_education] Lesson for interview adviceAll I know is that the lesson can be about anything (art) but he didn't
want to give me anymore details until I am asked to come for the 2nd
interview. The 1st interview is Tues and then the 2nd will be on
Thursday. I imagine it would be 45-60 minutes and need closure.
