RE: Rembrandt

Our Parent's group did Rembrandt last year, preceding a trip some of our
students took to Amsterdam. Altho this takes a bit of doing, we
assigned each person in Rembrandts' Night Watch painting a number - I
believe there are 19 folks total in that painting. Our classes are
limited to 20 so we added Rembrandt, too. Then we gave each child a
number, had them dress according to that person in the painting, and
took photos of them all in the Night watch pose. This takes some
advance doing - a copy of the pic so you can tell the students where to
stand, a large location with positions marked on the floor, as well as
appropriate costumes. With a number of parents in the room we were able
to have the kids dress and stand in the correct place, take a photo and
take off the simple costumes - all in about 20 min. It was successful -
I had a copy of Night Watch in my classroom and the kids would
frequently show me "I was that one!"


BTW, Love the idea of the Archibaldo wig.

Art discovery parnets are looking for a short activity for the kids to
do when they learn about Rembrandt -

like when they did Arcimboldo they covered a wig stand with velcro, and
had magazine flowers and fruits to make a portrait -


Any ideas?
