Lynda was looking for humor in art. Have you checked out the parodies =
of famous art? This seems to be a good impetus for students to get =
started looking for artworks. Introduce the parody and have a contest =
to see who can find it. Possibly work in teams of 3. Makes them =
identify style, approach, time period, etc. Then have them do their own =
parodies. Those can be hilarious. I have a Muppets book and a Warner =
Brothers Calendar that parody art, some the same ones for comparison. =
It's interesting to hear their thinking when they look at the parodies =
compared to the originals. Linda
