Lesson Plans

I purchased oversized, button-down, heavy-weight shirts of various
colors. I then did pencil sketches of entire paintings, or parts of
paintings, (letting the edges fade off) on each of the front panels, and
then one large pencil sketch on the back. I then painted in the colors
using bottled acrylics. Once the paint is dry, you can remove the
stiffness by applying a warm iron. The one drawback is that I now wash
my shirts out by hand.
The artists that I have put on shirts at this time are; Jackson
Pollock, Henri Matisse, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, and
my favorite poet Dr. Seuss. My students, especially the younger ones,
now recognize the artists' works on posters and slides before I can
begin to discuss them.
Hope this helps,
