I have a Magritte project in my book, Discovering Great Artists, where
the kids draw a shoe, perhaps a tennis shoe. Then they add little tiny
people climbing all over it, etc. so it looks like a GIANT SHOE. This
would be fun with farm implements...kind of like the idea above....maybe
King Kong climbing up a rake handle with airplanes buzzing all around.
The kids choose the implement, and then they draw their own "GIANT"
interpretation of integrating some drawing or things into the picture.
Teri is right;;;;;kids have the best imaginations so it would be fun and
easy for them. Just don't show them any finished samples of what their
work should look like, or they will most all draw that same thing. Just
talk about possibilities.
