<< Hi Art Teacher Friends with Brilliant Ideas--
Anyone out there have a cool idea using the millennium as a subject matter?

I am teaching a summer art class right now called "To Infinity and Beyond!"

We are building our own time capsules. Making a slab box, impressed with
designs and glazed, fired, etc. We added a latch for safekeeping! Then the
students drew a self portrait. Half of the portrait was to represent what the
student looks like now, painted in color. the other half was to represent
what the student predicts they will look like in the future-Some of the
students included details of occupation (nurses hat, uniform, etc.) This part
of the painting was in black in white. After the student was finished, some
words cut from newspaper were added around the work as a border, collage.
This painting was rolled like a scroll and tied.

The students also made a book illustrated with their hopes for the future,
We spoke about time capsules and what else we might include. Talked about
Warhol, and how he kept time capsules for many years.

These are just a few ideas that we did. Hope some of them helped, and made
sense!!! It is late for me.

Having a good summer in GA,
Heather :)
