Re: [art_education] Russian Arhitecture Elementary Ideas?
- Hi Patti,Glad to see you on Art Education list too!What grade levels are you thinking about using architecture with? I think it would be nice to use Russian art across the board. Something for each grade level. Maybe even a couple lessons per grade? Try to get the ARTaFacts magazine for Faberge - they are still available last I checked. (Link to ARTaFacts on Art Stores on IAD - but is easy to find).Order a copy for elementary to get some good lesson plans - and maybe one copy for secondary so you get more details on Faberge? I would love to see someone do a lesson - maybe making a foil tooled "treasure" box? Or maybe get a bunch of the plastic eggs at the end of the season and actually make some treasure eggs?I already sent you my ideas from your Getty post - so won't repeat those her - but will share some lesson ideas by Christine Sumner Lyman:See her 6th grade ceramic basilicas. She has a Faberge egg lesson and has done some of those stacking dolls - I don't see those on the site.IAD wants your lesson/lessons for Russian art. I need some place to stash all of those links I sent to you.Do Chagal fantasy.....or do Jawlenski portraits..... so many possibilities!I can't wait to see what the kiddies do.Judy Decker----- Original Message -----From: MissCaiola@...Sent: Friday, July 02, 2004 2:13 PMSubject: [art_education] Russian Arhitecture Elementary Ideas?Any suggestions/ideas/brainstorms out there for a lesson inspired by the architecture of Russian cathedrals and their painted "onion" style domes? I have been inspired by this for years and have been slowly collecting photos of this distinct type of architecture. I would love to introduce this to my elementary students this year, and am going through some "artist block" Must be the summer!Patti in Toledo, OH
