Using small, medium and larger pieces of illustration board, students used lines and dots to create pieces of mini-art. Then they glued the small pieces on a piece of black board, using squares of foam core to give the pieces different elevations. This was the BEST DAY!! I started with a brief Smartboard lesson on warm/cool colors and then moved on to showing the kids MacConnel's work at the Felsen Gallery. They got so into their designing that nobody wanted to go to recess!!! Here are a few results
I must say, it has been so long since I've had kids working with anything non-messy, that I forgot what it was to clean up and be ready for the next class with time to spare!!
