<< Would anybody be willing to share lesson ideas on the
Statue of Liberty that you have tried? I like the
idea of doing the one snip stars along with it. >>
Holly - with the fifth graders I used a line drawing from a source Judy D.
they enlarged it to a 12 x 16 page - asked them to be careful about
Then showed them other artists work with fireworks (there was one with the
twin towers in the background - I didn;t share that one - they might be ready
handle it all but I am not!!!- constant anxiety attacks). Showed them Leroy
flowing color backgrounds and Peter Max's approach. Then the lesson with the
stars to add or not add. Suggested eagles motifs and the furled flag. Let
choose and express themselves as they wished. I did stress accurate
of the Statue of Liberty - one child had an extremely long neck on his Statue
of Liberty and I said we really need to correct this - if you were Modigliani
Giacometti you would be famous for your elongated bodies and necks. So he
says "so I can leave the neck that long?!" I said another time - this lesson
proportion.- hope I didn;t scar him for life. The whole project is sort of
we go along. Thinking of matting them in blue and red construction paper.
Here are some of the links I used. Some will print some won;t???
