Last year, the 3 other Fine Arts teachers and I dressed for Halloween
as....Spacious Skies, Amber waves of grain, Purple mountains majesty,
and the Fruited plain. It was way cute, way easy. Don;t think too
hard.....It can get pretty funny pretty fast.

I don't always get to read all the posts so I don't know if I'm
repeating
something that was already written. Years ago I saw an elementary
school art
exhibit to the song "America the Beautiful" which impressed me. It
could
easily be done for any level. The art teacher broke the song into
phrases
and assigned them to different students to draw. The drawings were
displayed
under each sentence. Very powerful. I also think it gave the students
some
extra direction.

O beautiful for spacious skies, (drawing)
For amber waves of grain, (drawing)
For purple mountain majesties (drawing)
Above the fruited plain! (drawing)
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee, (drawing)
And crown thy good
With brotherhood, (drawing)
From sea to shining sea! (drawing)
