when I worked in a jr. high i used to start the seventh grade discussion on
line by
discussing the emotional qualities...we did a whip around the room and
everyone l thought of an emotion...i wrote them all on the board, then i
gave them 4x4" pieces of nice quality paper and biggie felta pens and we
created lines that expressed the emotions...we also talked about the
emotional qualities of color...i had them mount them on large poster
board...like a quilt. I kept a list of the projects and the emotions, then
we did a visual "quiz" so the artists could see if their lines spoke to the
class....i was surprised by the high level thinking skills they showed.
Sometimes
I really miss that age group. This took us 1-2 class periods...since the
work was
publicly shared, they were very concerned about quality.
