Dear Art Educators,

Here is a nice lesson idea from Arts & Activities Magazine:
I know many of you are looking for ways to connect digital media to
traditional media.
In this lesson, students photograph interesting shadows on campus -
change photo to black and white (high contrast) - transfer to prepared
Masonite - block out white with frisket - paint shadows in exploration
of color. Group project is particularly impressive (triptych).

If anyone does this lesson, please submit it to Incredible Art
Department. I will reference this article as the source of inspiration
(and link to A&A magazine).
