The closest my classes have come is to recreate some of Oldenburg's sculptures using their own bodies.
I love this idea. Makes me think, too, of Jackson Pollack. No one talks much about it, but I love the fact that he witnessed Native Am. sandpaintings being created as a child, giving his style some historical and physical basis.

        Hi all!
               Just thought I'd share a project I am working on. I am taking a Modern Art History class for teachers. Our final project is to create a lesson plan that incorporates Modern Art into our subject area and teach it to the class. Being one of the only art teachers in the class, I paired up with a phys ed teacher. (Who I thought was going to start crying when he realized what we had to do for a final project!) :) We came up with the concept of acting out the movement and rhythm of the brushstrokes in a painting. Because some of these teachers are taking an art history class for the first time, I figured no one was sick of Van Gogh's Starry Night yet. Has anyone ever done a project like this? Any tips? I am excited about it!
