Have them draw a brick wall in perspective and put their name on it in
grafitti. Old English lettering is always a big hit also--do some
callig. and let them write something in Spanish--you'll need to have
someone check out the translation for you.

You might want to give graffiti art a try. You could buy a large rolled
canvas that can be their "wall." I don't have a lesson plan, but if you
structure it well, with emphasis on principles of design, it could be
very worthwhile. Do you teach airbrushing? Airbrushing designs on
tee-shirts is another idea. Hope this helps.

  Our school is predominantly hispanics and blacks. Many of our
students are constatly moving, or have not desire for the arts, yet are
placed in art because of graduation requirements. ... How can I make
it more meaningful. I am hoping once I do the final project grade, it
will help with the failures.
