1. Have a choice of reproductions of famous paintings....divide students
into groups. Give a reproduction to each group which then acts out the
painting. The other students try to guess what is going on and if possible
what painting they are representing. Depending on time and availability of
materials, costumes can be improvised for the scene as well. I've done this
in a workshop and its been great fun!
2. For younger children: from a deck of color cards, have each child
choose a card without showing it to the other students. Each child then
acts out his color....for example, how would you communicate the color
yellow? How does it make you feel? How would you get this across to others
without using words.....The other students must then try to guess what color
the student is acting out.
