Re: Lesson on "Artists paint their Feelings"


Date: Tue May 21 2002 - 21:08:03 PDT

I do a lesson with my third graders where we talk about how artists share
something about themselves through their art.
We look at Faith Ringgold, Carmen Garza, Picasso and Van Gogh. Then I tell
the students to think about an event or important fact about themselves they
would like to share through their art. I've seen vacation scenes, family
pictures, musical instruments., etc. It's done with felt on burlap and glued
to a contruction paper mat. They turn out so great. I'll have some on my
website soon. Go to and look at the website on schools. Mine is
Wells elementary. Janet
