Greetigns Art Educators,
Barbara Yalof (Art Education list member) makes wonderful fine art jewelry.
Small wood pieces - gessoed - with painting and collage. She adds
beads an small collaged pieces as dangles. This would make a neat fund
raiser project for your students to try.
You can see Barb's jewelry at this link:
Contact Barb for your very own sample to get you started. She will
take $5.00 off for art teachers. I bought an amazing Dali pin.
If anyone does this as a lesson - do let me know. I would like to put
it on Incredible Art Department. If you are concerned about
"copyright" - settle for images that are all done before 1923 (or so).
I doubt any "copyright police" will come after you for using the
smaill images you find in your resource catalogs. You will be revising
them into unique mini works of art.
