Re: I have 15 boxes of FEATHERS... Any ideas for elementary???
- What about making masks- out of papermache, cast paper from a paper making project, boxes, or whatever you want- and have the students paint them. Then use the feathers to coat/completely cover the inside of the mask. It will give a nice juxtaposition of texture (I have done with my own sculpture, and it looks really cool.)
Oh, completely cover a sculpture from head to toe with feathers! Get boxes or shapes- beach balls, any 3-d object- and cover them with feathers. Stack or suspend them into a cool installation :) Oh, or a CHAIR. Combo this with a lesson on surrealist Meret Oppenheim's "Fur Covered Teacup" and you've got some art history going on. I think things the student use all the time would make them feel most connected to the object they are covering. Maybe a feather covered pencil box? I would love to see a feathered chair, though :)

- I'd love to see them. I did the Andean Feather Textiles about five years ago with third and fourth grade. If I can find the photos, i'll post them.Be grateful for luck.
