Thanks to everyone who responded about the torn tissue paper lesson. I had
some beautiful results in the two 5th grade classes. Lots of depth, color
transluciency and movement in abstract designs. We also talked about
positives and negatives, the piece torn out and the remaining torn out area
of the larger piece of tissue both being used. I'll be sorry to see a lot
of these kids go, as they are graduating next week, so that will be my last
class with them.
What to do with a bunch of hyped up kids for a finale? Wish I had a good
video on careers in art for some of them to see. Can anyone recommend a
good video for 5th grade level?
