have taught a lesson using Chagall's "I and my Village" for the
> last few years. I begin by showing several Chagall prints. I always
> like to hear what children have to say about paintings before I tell
> them any information. They amaze me with their responses. Then I give

> them biographical info re:Chagall. I then ask them to draw 2 profiles
using
> perm. black marker. One profile is to represent them and the other
can
> be an animal or human who is important to them. Then after a short
discussion
> of symbols or icons(how artists can use them) I ask them to fill in
space with
> symbols which represent 3 good things in their life and 3 negative
things. I
> tell them that this is personal and they do not have to tell
> anyone what the symbols represent. Fill space and overlap. Use payons
(compressed
> paint) to lightly and brightly add non-representational color. Then
paint. I have
> been very pleased with the results of this lesson. Fifth grade was
target,
> but any grade could be used. Good luck. Stephanie Billingsley
