Technology Lesson ideas -middle school and up
- Dear Art Educators,
Here's another one of Kris Fontes great technology recycling project (you
may remember her Op Art CD lesson - using all of those AOL freebies)
projects - Start digging through cupboards in the tech room for old 5 /14"
floppies. Floppy Disk books:
Kris is also a BIG fan of Extreme Makeover:
Here's a little diversion for the seventh graders as you near
the end of school. Instead of doing the same old tired Andy Warhol
manipulated images, have the kids manipulate their own images...correct
any blemishes, etc. (OK now... She is NOT advocating that their is
anything wrong with the way they look - smile). After they have done the
"photo retouching" she lets them liquefy their face. They talk about how
photographers, especially those that take wedding photos and senior
photos, do a LOT of manipulating and correcting.
Her high school students did not have as easy an assignment. Using the
photo of one of their teachers they were instructed to make her look ten
years younger by smoothing out her wrinkles, raising her brows, etc. They
have all had this teacher and she is well liked so she didn't get any
Are you up for it? have your student give YOU an extreme makeover.
This just might be a fun thing for those end of the woes....Even the best
fashion models' photos are retouched.
